Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and More Set for 2018 CMA Music Festival
Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and a whole host of country stars are in the lineup for the 2018 CMA Music Festival. Dozens of artists will play throughout Nashville during the four-day event, scheduled for June 7-10.
The Country Music Association made its initial CMA Fest 2018 lineup announcement on Wednesday (March 21) in a tweet. Urban and Underwood are among the artists scheduled to perform during nightly shows at Nissan Stadium; joining them will be, among others, Dierks Bentley, Carly Pearce, Chris Stapleton, Lee Ann Womack and more. Highlights from these shows will be broadcast as part of a TV special later in the summer.
In addition to the nightly Nissan Stadium shows, the CMA Music Festival also features performances on the Riverfront Stage, the Breakout Stage at Walk of Fame Park and the Forever Country Stage. Throughout the fest's four days, Lauren Alaina, Devin Dawson, Lanco, Maddie & Tae and many more will perform on the Riverfront Stage, while Abby Anderson, the James Barker Band, Ashley McBryde, Steve Moakler and others will be on the Breakout Stage. Terri Clark, Lonestar, Lorrie Morgan and many others are booked for the Forever Country Stage, which will spotlight artists from the 1980s, '90s and 2000s.
A full schedule, which lays out who's playing when during the 2018 CMA Music Festival, is available on the event's official website. Tickets are available now, and more information -- additional performing artists, Fan Fair X details, etc. -- will be available in the coming weeks.
