Carrie Underwood will headline the Friday-night concert at this year’s CMA Music Festival, with Chris Stapleton starting off the second nightly show at Nissan Stadium on June 10. He’ll be followed by Sam HuntEric Church and Hank Williams Jr., who’ll go on right before Carrie.

Dierks BentleyJason AldeanMiranda Lambert and Rascal Flatts are set to play the first night of the festival on Thursday, with the talent on subsequent nights to be announced in the coming weeks. Since all the four-day passes to the 2016 edition of CMA Music Festival sold out long before the lineups were announced, no single-day tickets were available to this year’s events.

If you’d still like to be part of the fun June 9-12, tickets still remain to see the stars perform and sign autographs at Fan Fair X inside Music City Center. As usual, downtown Nashville will also be overtaken by free stages and activities you can experience without ever having to spend a dime.

The artists who play CMA Music Festival perform for free, with all the proceeds going toward music education in schools.
