Located on the historic Broadway strip in downtown Nashville, the events will feature a performance by Warner Music Nashville/Atlantic group The Railers and exclusive screenings of ABC's new fall pilots "Trophy Wife," "The Goldbergs" and "Back in the Game."

In addition, Q&A sessions and autograph signings will be held with The Stella Sisters from the hit series "Nashville," Daytime Emmy winner and "General Hospital" star Jason Thompson (Dr. Patrick Drake) and beloved Nashville native Carla Hall from "The Chew."
