The Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl is more than a postseason collegiate football game: it’s an organization that focuses on giving back to the community through a wide variety of initiatives. The Bowl had a $15.7 million direct impact on Nashville’s economy last year, with an additional $17.1 million in value via media exposure for a total of $32.8 million in value for the City of Nashville. As one of Nashville’s biggest annual events, the Bowl has had nearly $284 million in direct economic impact on the city in its 19-year history.
“The Bowl has been successful in turning one of Nashville’s slowest tourism weeks into one of its busiest, as evidenced by the nearly $269 million in direct economic impact. It’s a great fan experience, and we’re pleased with the attendance and broadcast results. We look forward to the Bowl’s bright future with our new conference agreements,” said Dr. Phil Wenk and Evans Looney, 2016 Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl Co-Chairmen.
Additionally the Bowl is proud to continue giving back to the community. The bowl has donated over 51,000 tickets to the Youth Football Program and other charitable donations. With the help of Delta Dental of Tennessee we have provided more than 80,000 mouth guards to the Youth Football Program.

Through our partnership with the Wounded Warriors Program, the Bowl has been proud to send 100 military service veterans and their families to the game and Bowl Week events!
Franklin American Mortgage Company continues to utilize the Bowl as a platform for some of its charitable efforts. This year they will award a high school football junior or senior with a $3,000 Tradition of Service Award Scholarship for his efforts on and off the football field. They will also continue to host a Make-A-Wish child and their family for the entire Bowl Week.
