Throughout the years, performers have utilized the festival as a place to meet fans, take pictures and sign autographs. Games, attractions and food vendors will be situated throughout downtown Nashville to accommodate the annual event.

Also scheduled to perform this year’s main stage is: Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne, Kane Brown, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw and Pistol Annies, among many more.

The current lineup for each venue can be found below:

As CMA Fest is a great platform of exposure for many of the newer country musicians, each of the announced acts has offered to donate their time to the CMA Foundation, which was established by the CMA back in 2001, when the festival was known as “Fan Fair.”

The foundation is committed to ensuring children across the globe have the opportunity to participate in any kind of music education, as well as sustaining that level of education.

Ultimately, the CMA hopes to continuously develop new generations of country musicians for as long as possible.
