Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw to headline CMA Music Fest
The June 5-8 event is country music’s largest festival, with headliners taking over LP Field at night, while country artists play on stages set up throughout Nashville.
Among the other top names playing at LP Field in the nightly series are Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert, Hunter Hayes, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Thomas Rhett, Darius Rucker, The Band Perry, Keith Urban, Chris Young, and Zac Brown Band.
Tickets to the LP Field concerts are already sold out, although there are still other events throughout the city that fans can enjoy, including Fan Fair X at Music City Center, which features artists performing, celebrities Q&As, autograph sessions and more.
CMA Music Fest was born out of Fan Fair, which launched in 1972 as a way for country artists to say thanks to their loyal fans. Last year’s CMA est brought more than 80,000 daily visitors to Nashville from al 50 states and 2 dozen foreign countries.
If you can’t get to Nashville, highlights from the LP Field concerts will be broadcast on an ABC TV special, “CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock,” that will air later in the summer.
