The stadium is used primarily for sporting events and music concerts and festivals. The stadium is the home field of the NFL's Tennessee Titans and the Tennessee State University Tigers. It is also the site of the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl, a postseason college football game played each December, and is occasionally used as a venue for soccer matches. The stadium is also used for large concerts such as the CMA Music Festival nightly concerts which take place for four days every June.

LP Field is located on the east bank of the Cumberland River, directly across the river from downtown Nashville. Its seating capacity is 69,143. Its first event was a preseason game between the Titans and the Atlanta Falcons on August 27, 1999.
The playing surface of LP Field is Tifsport Bermuda Sod, a natural grass. However, the relatively warm climate of Nashville, combined with the wear and tear of hosting a game nearly every weekend, usually results in a resodding of the area "between the hashes" in late November.

Famous quotes containing the word field:
“You cannot go into any field or wood, but it will seem as if every stone had been turned, and the bark on every tree ripped up. But, after all, it is much easier to discover than to see when the cover is off. It has been well said that the attitude of inspection is prone. Wisdom does not inspect, but behold.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
