CMA Fest announces initial lineup

Tuesday, April 12, 2022 – The Country Music Association has released its initial lineup for this year's CMA Fest, returning to downtown Nashville Thursday through Sunday, June 9-12 following a two-year postponement due to the pandemic.

Hundreds of artists are slated to perform on multiple stages across downtown Nashville. Fans can access a limited number of four-day passes, plus newly announced single night tickets, for the Nissan Stadium nightly concerts at CMAfest.com or through the CMA Box Office at 1-800-CMA-FEST. Artists donate their time so a portion of ticket sales are invested in music education programs throughout the U.S. via the CMA Foundation.

"We've been waiting two years to host country music fans from coast to coast and every corner of the world," said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. "Now we're two months out and the excitement is palpable. We can hardly wait to bring the country community back together in June."
