The 2013 Country Music Association Music Festival will be here in Nashville in just a few short weeks, bringing country music fans from all corners of the world here to Nashville to take in the entertainment and musical performances.
This year’s CMA Music Fest is the 42nd annual and it will feature all of the industry’s hottest artists, including Taylor Swift, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Tracy Lawrence, Zac Brown Band, Hunter Hayes and more!
The CMA Music Fest, also known as the ‘ultimate country music fan experience,’ is a festival in which multiple stages are filled with country music artists–new artists to legends–and fans are given the chance to discover music, make a connection with artists and meet other fellow fans. Better yet, proceeds from the Festival support music education in Metro Nashville Public Schools and other programs through CMA’s Keep the Music Playing Program.
Tickets can be purchased online here. While the four-day passes are already sold out for 2013, the AT&T U-verse Fan Fair X is still offering tickets for its events in the new Music City Center; day passes are available for just $10, and a four-day pass is also available for $25.
Don’t have tickets but still want to get in on the fun that comes along with the CMA Music Fest? Head to downtown Nashville on Wednesday, June 5th at 11 a.m. for the CMA Music Fest Kick-Off Parade! Another way to see music without a ticket is through the free shows on the Riverfront Stage.
Riverfront Stage performances will start on Thursday, June 6th at 10 a.m. with a show by Sara Evans. Other artists that will belt tunes from the Riverfront Stage this year include Keith Anderson, Greg Bates, Blackberry Smoke, Craig Campbell, Mark Chesnutt, Brett Eldredge, Rachel Farley, Tyler Farr, Colt Ford, Gloriana, The Grascals, Steve Holy, Casey James, Kristen Kelly, Aaron Lewis, Lonestar, Love and Theft, Dustin Lynch, Jo Dee Messina, Ronnie Milsap, Craig Morgan, David Nail, Joe Nichols, Jerrod Niemann, Paslay, Maggie Rose, Corey Smith, Tate Stevens, Sunny Sweeney, Phil Vassar, Chuck Wicks, Gretchen Wilson, and Darryl Worley.
