The 2019 CMA Music Festival has revealed its massive lineup of initial performers, with Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban among the list of country stars set to descend on Nashville from June 6 – 9.
Known as the longest running country music festival in the world, this year’s event will mark the 48th year of the CMA Fest. Close to 100,000 fans from around the globe are once again expected to visit the city over the four days of the festival, which will essentially take over Nashville’s downtown area with multiple stages and a carnival-like atmosphere – much of which is free and open to the public.
As in years past the extravagant nightly concerts at Nissan Stadium will serve as the CMA Fest’s marquee events, and while headliners and specific performance schedules have not yet been revealed, Bryan, Lambert, Underwood and Urban will be joined by superstars like Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne, Kane Brown, Luke Combs, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, Maren Morris, Old Dominion, Pistol Annies, Rascal Flatts and Thomas Rhett.
Meanwhile, the Chevy Riverfront Stage will offer free entertainment each day from 10 a.m. – 5:15 p.m., featuring an even larger performance list of up-and-coming artists alongside some of today’s hottest young hitmakers and more. Lauren Alaina, Jimmie Allen, Jordan Davis, Gavin DeGraw, Russell Dickerson, Lindsay Ell, Ryan Hurd, Ashley McBryde, Carly Pearce, Dylan Scott, Mitchell Tenpenny and Morgan Wallen are just a few of the rising stars who will be included.
And for those looking to relive the country magic of the past few decades, the Budweiser Forever Country Stage returns for its third year of 100-percent free nostalgia. Legacy and current artists like Keith Anderson, Deana Carter, Joe Diffie, Little Texas, Lonestar, The Marshall Tucker Band, Montgomery Gentry, Lorrie Morgan, Jamie O’Neal, Shenandoah, Ricky Skaggs, Darryl Worley and many more will all be on tap, along with a slew of other music-related events, fan club parties and autograph signings which will take place all around the city.
A limited number of four-day passes for the nightly Nissan Stadium performances are still available at CMAfest.com or through the CMA Box Office at 1-800-CMA-FEST.
