Last year, the Country Music Association gathered some of country music's biggest stars for "Forever Country." Now, they are bringing some of the genre's best artists from the 80s, 90s and 2000s to a new stage at CMA Fest 2017.
The "Forever Country" stage will feature Mark Chesnutt, Jeff Bates, Bellamy Brothers, John Berry, Confederate Railroad, George Ducas, Emerson Drive, Exile, Andy Griggs, Ty Herndon, Tracy Lawrence, Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers, Little Texas, Lonestar, Mila Mason, Terry McBride, Rick Monroe, Jamie O'Neal, James Otto, Danielle Peck, Trick Pony, Collin Raye, Restless Heart, Julie Roberts, Ray Scott, Shenandoah, Doug Supernaw, Rhonda Vincent and Daryle Singletary, Lari White, Mark Wills and Darryl Worley.
It will all go down in the park behind Nashville's Ascend Ampitheater, just over the river from Nissan Stadium. All performances will be free to the public.
If you have tickets to the nightly shows at the stadium, don't worry. All performances at the Forever Country stage will be held from 11 a.m. to 4:45 p.m each day. If you haven't snagged your passes for the four-day event, a limited amount are still available for purchase.
