The Country Music Association has revealed the initial artist lineup for this year’s CMA Fest, which features hundreds of Country Music artists performing on multiple stages throughout downtown Nashville Thursday through Sunday, June 6-9. CMA Fest is a one-of-a-kind festival with artists donating their time to perform so ticket proceeds can directly benefit high-quality music programs across the country through the CMA Foundation. A limited number of four-day passes for the nightly performances at Nissan Stadium are still available at CMAfest.com or through the CMA Box Office at 1-800-CMA-FEST.

Returning for a third year, the Budweiser Forever Country Stage will take place from 11:00 AM-4:45 PM daily. Featuring some of the biggest names in Country Music from recent decades, this year’s lineup includes Keith Anderson, Deana Carter, John Carter Cash, Joe Diffie, George Ducas, Charles Esten, Andy Griggs, Halfway to Hazard, Ty Herndon, Honky Tonkin’ with Tracy Lawrence, Little Texas, Lonestar, The Marshall Tucker Band, Kendell Marvel, Neal McCoy, Montgomery Gentry, Lorrie Morgan, The Nelsons, Jerrod Niemann, Jamie O’Neal, The Road Hammers, Ray Scott, Shenandoah, Sister Hazel, Ricky Skaggs, Kiefer Sutherland, Thompson Square, Uncle Kracker, Mark Wills, Rita Wilson and Darryl Worley.

Outdoor daytime stages including Chevy Riverfront and Budweiser Forever Country are free and open to the public. All artist lineups are subject to change.

The initial lineup announcement was made exclusively via the CMA Fest app as the CMA Foundation celebrates Music In Our Schools Month. For more than 30 years, March has been officially designated by the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) for observance of Music In Our Schools Month, the time of year when music education becomes the focus of schools across the nation.

This month, the CMA Foundation will participate in multiple events in support of music education, including a panel during SXSW EDU to discuss the importance of music in a child’s life, the first-ever Music Teacher Hill Day in West Virginia with Americana artist Christian Lopez, a meeting with the Cohort in New Orleans to help increase arts education for all students, and a school visit in Louisville with K. Michelle Lewis, winner of the Give a Note Music Education Innovator Award for Project Based Learning through Music, which includes advocating for others and addressing social issues through student led music projects. In addition, this year’s 30 recipients of Music Teachers of Excellence, the CMA Foundation’s program aimed at celebrating, honoring and investing in quality teaching, will be announced in the coming week.

Additional stage lineups, Fan Fair X activities, and more will be announced in the coming weeks.
