The lineup for the first night of CMA Fest has been announced, and it features some of the biggest names in country music.
Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, Little Big Town, Dierks Bentley and Rascal Flatts will perform at Nissan Stadium on June 9. The first four artists were revealed through the CMA Fest mobile app, which will reveal additional artists on the lineup next Tuesday (March 15).
The ever-growing 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 fans 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.
