EDIT: The full line-up is OFFICIALLY here! View it below.
Every year, country music fans across the world wait for one major event, the CMA Music Festival hosted in Nashville, TN. The festival consists of four days of incredible music from up-and-coming acts, superstar performers, fan club parties, and good old fashion fun. It’s the one time a year that fans can gather in one place and see virtually every musician they’ve been listening to over the past year. In a word, it’s amazing. It’s the festival that made me fall in love with Nashville, and eventually, had me desperate to move here. So wanderlusters, beware.
At the beginning of March, the CMA’s began announcing their stellar main stage line-up for 2016, and so far, it’s pretty incredible. All of your favorite stars will be gracing the stage at Nissan Stadium this summer to give fans one hell of a weekend. If you feel like your favorite act might be missing, don’t fret. One more main stage announcement is set to go out this week and there are a number of other stages throughout the city that have yet to be announced. So, chances are, you’re going to see your favorite show up soon.
Heavy hitters like Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood are just a few of the major stars returning for CMA fest this summer. But it doesn’t end there, they’ve sprinkled in a few of our favorite 2015 breakout stars including Kelsea Ballerini and Chris Stapleton. We’ve got one more announcement to go, but if what’s already been released is any indication, you’re going to want to get in on this action.
Check out the line-up below and check back for more stage announcements, fan-club parties, and events.
