    Hollywood Hits and Nashville Stars Come to Carrollton’s AMP This Summer


    Carrollton Main Street announced the Amp’s much-anticipated 2019 calendar with a schedule of concerts and movies sure to draw thousands of people to the city’s downtown amphitheater this summer.

    “The downtown vibe is amped up more than ever this year,” said Main Street Director Aundi Lesley. “You won’t want to miss any of these concerts and movies. And while you’re downtown, enjoy the food, drinks, shopping and fun of Carrollton’s historic heart, Adamson Square.”

A concert showcasing local musicians will conclude the inaugural running of the Carrollton Half Marathon on September 7. The Summer Concert series is sponsored by Scott Evans.
