The city, the music, the artists, the fans… CMA Fest is simply put like nothing else.
“I think CMA week there’s just a good energy in town. It’s crazy as you guys know, but it’s something you look forward to every year. Nashville is beautiful. It’s just like no other.
Florida Georgia Line now a headliner, know it’s the fans that have skyrocketed them to stardom. And some of the veterans on the scene understand CMA Fest’s role in the process.
Rascall Flats – “Anytime you can get this many fans in a stadium this size it’s going to help anybody’s career.
It’s all been about the fans growing the ground roots word of mouth fan base. Country music does it best and the country music fans do it best.”
It wasn’t always CMA Fest. This even started as Fan Fest.
Alan Jackson – “When I first started it was Fan Fare at the fair grounds signing autographs in the hot buildings.”
Now celebreating 25 years of entertaining, Alan Jackson admits CMA Fest has become a family affair.
“My 3 daughters and 10 friends, we have to pack in the vans and get them out here. They come to every night, not to see me, they come to see everybody else.”
From the biggest stars, to the up and comers, CMA Fest gives fans a buffet of music. Maddie and Tae are two of the rising stars who recently moved to this city as songwriters and now performers.
“This week is like a country music fans dream. I wish we had been able to come here and experience… this is our first week we’ve been a part of CMA week.”
