NASHVILLE – CMA Music Festival’s Saturday night stadium
lights will shine on Florida Georgia Line, Blake Shelton,
Cole Swindell, and Chris Young when they
perform Saturday, June 11 as
part of the Nightly Concerts at Nissan Stadium.
They join previously announced Country Music superstars
Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Eric Church,
Sam Hunt, Miranda Lambert, Rascal Flatts,
Chris Stapleton, Carrie Underwood, and Hank
Williams, Jr. who will perform during the Festival’s first two nights.
Artists and schedules are subject to change.
Additionally, on Tuesday “Access Hollywood” made
the announcement that Kelsea Ballerini has been added to the
previously announced Thursday night lineup. The exclusive announcement was followed
at 4:00 PM/CT with a takeover by the chart-topping singer/songwriter of @CountryMusic,
CMA’s official Twitter handle.
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.
