NASHVILLE, TN (WAFF) -

The man accused of fatally shooting an Arab-native musician is set to go to trial nearly a year to the day of the incident.

Chris Ferrell is accused of shooting country singer Wayne Mills to death outside of the bar Ferrell owns in Nashville TN.

Ferrell told police he shot Mills in self-defense the night of Nov. 23 2013 after the two got into an argument over Mills smoking a cigarette in a non-smoking area of the bar.

An autopsy shows Mills was shot in the back of the head.

A Nashville judge set Ferrell's trial for November 17.
