Tonight’s event will be hosted by the talented Thomas Rhett and Kelsea Ballerini. For those of you who are hearing the buzz about this year’s “CMA Fest” and have no clue what that is we’ve got you covered. The CMA Music Festival is a four-day country music festival typically hosted each June by the Country Music Association in Nashville, Tennessee. It started first as Fan Fair in 1972, and the event now draws over 400 artists and celebrities who hold autograph sessions and perform in concerts offered throughout the festival. In 2011, over 250,000 people at ticketed events and in free areas were in attendance. Visitors came from 41 different nations, and all 50 states.
During the festival, attendees can choose from over 151 hours of concerts that are offered on stages at Riverfront Park and LP Field. Half of the proceeds from the festival each year go to charity while the other half is earmarked by the CMA for the advancement of country music.
