The site of the Music City Bowl reportedly was damaged during Nashville’s Fourth of July fireworks display Tuesday.
As reported by WKRN on Wednesday, the upper deck of Nissan Stadium was damaged after a shell hit the area. Fortunately, there were no injuries in the incident, per WKRN. But as you can see below from the photo provided by Pro Football Spot’s Greg Arias, a repair job is necessary.

Nissan Stadium, which is the home of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans, has hosted the Music City Bowl since 1999. Then, the location was called Adelphia Coliseum.
Tennessee beat Nebraska in the most recent Music City Bowl last December. Former Tennessee quarterback Josh Dobbs starred during the Vols’ victory, with him passing for 291 yards and rushing for 118.
It’s good news that nobody was hurt during this incident. Still, expect a few new seats at Nissan Stadium this fall.
