2011 CMA Award winners Jason Aldean and The Band Perry have joined the performance lineup for the Nightly Concerts at LP Field during 2012 CMA Music Festival.  The event that USA Today calls “the crown jewel of Country Music festivals” will once again take over downtown Nashville for four days this summer, Thursday-Sunday, June 7-10, 2012.  

Five-time CMA Award winner Carrie Underwood was previously announced as performing at the legendary festival, which has grown since starting in 1972 as Fan Fair® to become Nashville’s signature music event. Additional artists will be announced in the coming weeks.  

Aldean received his first two CMA Awards in November when he won Album of the Year for My Kinda Party and Musical Event of the Year for “Don’t You Wanna Stay” with Kelly Clarkson. 

The Band Perry also won their first two CMA Awards last month, winning New Artist of the Year and Single of the Year (for “If I Die Young”). Lead singer Kimberly Perry won an additional CMA Award for Song of the Year for writing “If I Die Young.”
