Summer is a popular time for concerts, especially music festivals. Country music is no exception to this. There are many popular country music festivals across the country throughout the summer.
One of the best known country music festivals is CMA Fest. This festival, which runs from June 5-8 in Nashville, features four days of country music from some of the biggest names in the business like Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Hunter Hayes, Blake Shelton, The Band Perry, and more.
This festival provides fans with an up close and personal experience with some of their favorite artists. This long weekend is filled with concerts, extra performances, meet and greets and other fun events.
While these artists perform at LP Field in Nashville, there are also performances throughout these four days at the Chevrolet Riverfront Stage. Featured on this stage are artists like Big & Rich, Craig Campbell, Parmalee, Dan + Shay, David Nail and more.
The CMA Festival was created for fans in 1972 as a chance to discover new music, enjoy old favorites, and bond with other country music fans. Proceeds from this event go toward the CMA Foundation’s Keep the Music Playing on behalf of artists who play for free. This program has donated more than $8.9 million to support music programs in schools.
