Opening Day – June 9th: Jake Owen will hit the stage at 10:00am, with his new hit, “American Country Love Song.” The crowd is bound to be packed and excited to start off the festival with such an amazing artist! Brothers Osborne will go on at 12:00pm, with “Stay A Little Longer” and “21 Summer.” These men are crushing the charts and are the next big thing! Every person in Nashville adores Brothers Osborne and you should get on board and see what they are all about. Maddie & Tae are up next at 1:30pm. This lovable female duo is showing the country scene how powerful women are through their lyrics. Plus, they are a ton of fun. Last but not least, Maren Morris will go on at 3:00pm. It is definitely not an act to miss. Radio stations all over the country are playing her song, “My Church,” over and over again, so we know her performance will be an incredible show.
June 10th: Eric Paslay will start off CMA Fest that morning at 10:45am. Paslay is well-known in the country music genre and is incredible to see live. Kane Brown is up next at 12:15pm. He’s one of the hottest up-and-coming artists in country music this year! His voice is one of the most powerful in the industry, which is demonstrated in two of his more well-known songs, “Used to Love You Sober” and “Last Minute Late Night.” Thompson Square will take the stage at 2:30pm. They are a dynamic duo with powerful harmonies, so you will not regret going to see them! You may recognize their hit single, “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not,” and they recently released a new song, “You Make It Look So Good” in May.

Closing Day – June 12th: Jon Pardi will start off the afternoon by taking the stage at 12:15 pm. Jon is such a talented country star and knows how to please his audience. Some of his most well-known songs, include “Head Over Boots,” “What I Can’t Put Down” and “When I’ve Been Drinkin'” which are all so amazing. Cam is up next at 1:45pm. She’s been all over the country charts recently with “Burning House” and “Mayday.” She has an amazing voice both live and on her recordings, and we think she is worth every second to see. Tyler Farr will go on at 3:15pm. Over the past few years, Farr has been making his mark all over the country. Every person who listens to “A Guy Walks into a Bar” falls in love with him instantly. Old Dominion is on at 4:00pm. They are an amazing group that has been on the rise over the past few years. They are one of the best groups to see live and actually wrote Tyler Farr’s “A Guy Walks into a Bar,” so you know Old Dominion is extremely talented! And finally, LOCASH will perform at 4:45pm. The group has been stealing the hearts of all of their fans. Their song, “I Love This Life,” never gets old and is perfect in every situation, so it’s definitely not a show to miss!
