CMA Announces New ‘Forever Country’ Stage at CMA Fest

With the days ticking down closer to 2017 CMA Music Festival, the list of artists taking on performance duties keeps growing and growing.

The Country Music Association just announced the jam-packed lineup slated for the brand new Forever Country Park Stage set up right behind Ascend Amphitheater in downtown Nashville. Featuring some of the best country musicians from the 80s, 90s and 00s, fans can get ready to be taken back in time with the music that used to blare through their car speakers.

The Forever Country Park Stage Lineup will feature performances from artists such as Jeff Bates, Bellamy Brothers, John Berry, Mark Chesnutt, Emerson Drive, Ty Herndon, “Honky Tonkin’ with Tracy Lawrence and Friends”, Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers, Little Texas, Lonestar, Terry McBride, Jamie O’Neal, James Otto, Trick Pony, Shenandoah, Mark Wills, Darryl Worley and many more.

Although many visitors take advantage of the summer weather by exploring all of the day concerts throughout the downtown radius, others take a chill pill while visiting the indoor section of the festival hosted in the Nashville Visitor Center located in Bridgestone Arena. Taking some time to relax in the air conditioned space, fans can hear even more live music while resting away from the hot sunshine.

Artists playing the Music City Stage inside include Sammy Arriaga, Kassi Ashton, Tristan McIntosh, Megan & Liz, Native Run, Camille Rae, Mary Sarah, Zach Seabaugh and others.

The country music festival provides free music across a number of stages during the day with the opportunity for pass holders to check out the night shows at Nissan Stadium. Artists such as Thomas Rhett, Sam Hunt, Little Big Town and many more will take on the duties of performing in the stadium throughout the weekend.
