CMA has released its initial lineup for this year’s CMA Fest, returning to downtown Nashville Thursday through Sunday, June 9-12 following a two-year postponement due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hundreds of Country Music artists are slated to perform on multiple stages across downtown Nashville, including many of our favorite singing show contestants from American Idol, The Voice and more.

Fans can access a limited number of four-day passes, plus newly announced single night tickets, for the Nissan Stadium nightly concerts at or through the CMA Box Office at 1-800-CMA-FEST.

The concerts take place at five different venues, including the Nissan Stadium, where Carrie Underwood headlines on Saturday night, The Chevy Riverfront Stage, Dr. Pepper Amp Stage at Ascend Park, Chevy Vibes Stage at Walk of Fame park and The Maui Jim Reverb Stage at Bridgestone Arena Plaza.
