Jimmie Allen and Lindsay Ell are ready to deliver the kind of back-to-school concert you always dreamed of. This Thursday (Aug. 26), the two hitmakers will take the stage for a free virtual concert, live in Nashville and presented by Walgreens and Unilever.

Allen ("Best Shot," "Make Me Want To," "Freedom Was a Highway") and Ell ("Criminal," "Want Me Back," "What Happens in a Small Town") will take the stage individually and together during this Facebook Live event. The concert will include their first live performance of a duet called "Tequila Talkin'" and so much more.
