CMA Music Festival
The biggest event in country music
Over four days each June is the CMA Music Festival, put on annually by the Country Music Association. The festival takes place in Nashville, TN, the epicenter of country music and known as “Music City USA”. At this 46th edition of the event, all of country music’s biggest stars will gather to celebrate the most popular music in the United States. Its humble beginnings were as Fan Fair, back in 1972, with just 5,000 fans attending. Since then, however, it has grown into one of country music’s biggest events. These days, the CMA Music Festival showcases over 400 artists and regularly sees over a quarter-million guests. During the festival, there are 100’s of concerts spanning every style of country music as well as meet-and-greets, autograph opportunities and events held by major record labels and fan clubs. Taking place at three venues throughout downtown Nashville, the CMA Music Festival is a great way to spend time in this amazing city and experience one of country music’s biggest events.
The main venue is downtown at Music City Center where all the artist booths will be located for autographs and fan interactions. At the Riverfront Park Stage, set along the Cumberland River at Riverfront Park, is where country music’s stars from the past will perform along with its youngest talent and up-and-coming stars. Once the sun goes down, the lights will be bright at Nissan Stadium where, all in one place, the biggest artists and labels of Country Music will be. On opening night of the festival, Kenny Rogers, Miranda Lambert and Cole Swindell will be taking the stage. Friday sees major recording artists Trace Adkins, Rascal Flats and Blake Shelton.
