Packed with country music powerhouses like Luke Bryan, Dan + Shay, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and much more, this year's CMA Festival is sure to rock your boots off! And, in addition to this year's artists, CMA Fest has also invited special guests Bebe Rexha and Lauren Alaina to perform their country collaboration hits.
There will be four stages, with the largest being the Nissan Stadium, followed by the Riverfront Stage, Breakout Stage and last but not least, the Budweiser Forever Country Stage, with each stage giving artists ample amounts of time to play their set. With such a wide range of country artists performing at the CMA 2018 Fest, fans can anticipate it being a party every day at the festival, from Thursday through Sunday!
As mentioned by the CMA, artists that will be performing at this year's CMA Fest will be doing so in support of the CMA Foundation and music education, meaning that proceeds from the festival will be donated to music education programs throughout the state of Tennessee. The 2018 CMA Music Festival will be held in Nashville on June 7-10, and passes to the festival as well as answers to any questions can be found at the CMA website.
