NASHVILLE – CMA Music Festival’s Friday night stadium lights
will shine on Eric Church, Sam Hunt, Chris
Stapleton, Carrie Underwood, and Hank Williams,
Jr. when they perform Friday,
June 10 as part of the Nightly Concerts at Nissan Stadium.
They join previously announced
Country Music superstars Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley,
Miranda Lambert, and Rascal Flatts, who will
perform during the Festival’s opening night. Artists and schedules are subject to change.
Each Wednesday in March
CMA will announce the lineup for a different Nightly Concert at Nissan Stadium.
Loyal fans who download the CMA Music Festival app learn of the new performers
a full 24 hours before the announcements are made to the public.
The 2016 CMA Music Festival
runs Thursday through Sunday, June 9-12
in downtown Nashville. While the Festival boasts numerous free stages and unique
fan experiences, the most anticipated events are the Nightly Concerts at Nissan
Stadium, which sell out long before talent is announced.
This year’s app is now available in the App store
and includes features that allow fans to create individual concert schedules and
be the first to know which of their favorite stars will be appearing on the Nissan Stadium stage.
Funds generated through
CMA Music Festival ticket sales benefit music education. Since 2006, CMA and the
CMA Foundation have donated more than $13.6 million to support sustainable music
education initiatives across the country on behalf of the artists who participate in the event for free.
Fans who were not able
to purchase tickets to the Nightly Concerts are still able to enjoy non-stop music,
fan engagement, and artist experiences through numerous FREE stages and events
across town and by experiencing Fan Fair X in the Music City Center.
Tickets to Fan Fair X are
available now at CMAfest.com
(Fan Fair X admission is included in four-day CMA Music Festival tickets). Fan
Fair X tickets are $10 per day or $25 for a four-day pass.
For the second year, fans will
be able to purchase a four-day pass to the Fan Fair X that includes a general
admission ticket to the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum that is good for
use any day in 2016. The package deal is on sale now through Friday, June 10 and costs $39.95. The combination Fan Fair
X/Country Music Hall of Fame tickets are available via the Country Music Hall
of Fame website, http://countrymusichalloffame.org,
