Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, Little Big Town, Dierks Bentley and Rascal Flatts will headline the festivities on June 9, while Chris Stapleton, Hank Williams Jr., Eric Church, Carrie Underwood and Sam Hunt have been tapped for the nightly concert scheduled for June 10.
The forty-four year old country music festival will be held June 9-12 in downtown Nashville. Passes for the nightly concerts at Nissan Stadium are sold out, but fans can still enjoy free showcases throughout the city during the festival. Passes for Fan Fair X, where festival-goers can meet and greet their favorite artists, are still available.
This year, fans will be able to see artists perform at one of downtown's newest venue, the Ascend Amphitheater. Lineup announcements for these performances are expected to be released in the coming weeks.
Last year's CMA Fest nightly stadium shows included sets from Brad Paisley, Sam Hunt, Eric Church, Keith Urban, Alan Jackson, Luke Bryan, Zac Brown Band, Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, The Oak Ridge Boys, Cole Swindell, Brett Eldredge, The Band Perry, and Thomas Rhett.
