CMA Music Festival’s Saturday night stadium lights will shine on Florida Georgia Line, Blake Shelton, Cole Swindell, and Chris Young when they perform Saturday, June 11 as part of the Nightly Concerts at Nissan Stadium.
They join previously announced Country Music superstars Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Sam Hunt, Miranda Lambert, Rascal Flatts, Chris Stapleton, Carrie Underwood, and Hank Williams, Jr. who will perform during the Festival’s first two nights. Artists and schedules are subject to change.
Additionally, on Tuesday “Access Hollywood” made the announcement that Kelsea Ballerini has been added to the previously announced Thursday night lineup. The exclusive announcement was followed at 4:00 PM/CT with a takeover by the chart-topping singer/songwriter of @CountryMusic, CMA’s official Twitter handle.
Each Wednesday in March CMA will announce the lineup for a different Nightly Concert at Nissan Stadium. Loyal fans who download the CMA Music Festival app learn of the new performers a full 24 hours before the announcements are made to the public.
The 2016 CMA Music Festival runs Thursday through Sunday, June 9-12 in downtown Nashville. While the Festival boasts numerous free stages and unique fan experiences, the most anticipated events are the Nightly Concerts at Nissan Stadium, which sell out long before talent is announced.
