The CMA Music Festival, presented by the Country Music Association, is a four-day extravaganza celebrating country music in Nashville each June. This year's festival features over 400 artists and celebrities participating in autograph sessions and various concerts throughout the event - drawing hundreds of thousands of fans to enjoy its unique offerings.
What began as the CMA Music Festival in 1972 has become a much-anticipated annual event, drawing visitors from all over Nashville, Tennessee, each year. Boasting an array of activities and attractions that change with every passing year, this music festival is sure to be one you won't want to miss!
In 2001, the event underwent its biggest transformation yet by changing its name from Fan Fair to CMA Music Festival. As a result of this shift, performances began taking place on weekends instead of during the week and were relocated away from Tennessee State Fairground to multiple locations in downtown Nashville.
At the festival each year, half of all profits are given to charity, while the CMA allocates the other portion for "the promotion and growth of country music".
