Nashville, TN –Whether you live in Nashville or just want to visit, the best time to enjoy anything musical is the one full packed week in June when Music City turns on their charm for Fan Fair.
Starting over 40 years ago, at the relatively small venue of Nashville’s Municipal Auditorium with about 5,000 people, they quickly outgrew the building and moved to the Nashville Fairgrounds. Now, this event has become so large, it’s taking place in the newly constructed Music City Center in downtown Nashville.
This year is sure to excite music fans from all over with show stoppers from Lady Antebellum, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift, The Band Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Dierks Bentley, Georgette Jones, Zac Brown Band, Gretchen Wilson, TG Sheppard, Lee Greenwood, Miranda Lambert, Jim Ed Brown, Little Big Town, Jo Dee Messina, Joe Diffie, Brad Paisley, Lorrie Morgan, Pam Tillis, Lynn Anderson, LuLu Roman, Mark Chestnutt, Marshall Tucker Band, Randy Travis, Ray Stevens, Ricky Skaggs, Riders in the Sky, Ronnie Milsap, Steel Magnolia, Steve Wariner, Sweethearts of the Rodeo, T. Graham Brown, The Oak Ridge Boys, Wynonna, and hundreds more. Four days and nights of non-stop music!
If that’s not enough to wet your whistle, check out the hundreds of autograph signings, lifestyle exhibits, events, marketplace, live broadcasts, celebrity Q&A sessions, and more, taking place during this huge musical extravaganza.
If you decide to go (and who wouldn’t want to with this lineup?), make sure to download their official CMA Fest app on iTunes or GooglePlay for their full schedule.
