CMA Music Festival Keeps It Classic with New Nightly Concert Additions

Country Music Association

The Country Music Association is putting a classic twist on this year’s CMA Music Festival, with the latest round of additions to the nightly concerts at Nissan Stadium.

Country Music Hall of Famers the Oak Ridge Boys join this year’s inductee Charlie Daniels on the Thursday-night lineup, with Clint Black joining the list of Friday performers. Saturday, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and the Marshall Tucker Band take the stage, with funnyman Ray Stevens and Exile set to play Sunday.

“It All Started with a Beer” singer Frankie Ballard has secured a spot on the big stage on Friday as well. Next Tuesday, we find out who’ll play the daily shows in Riverfront Park, with the big reveal coming via the CMA Music Festival 2016 app.

This year’s edition of the festival formerly known as Fan Fair is June 9-12 in Nashville. While the nightly concerts at Nissan Stadium have been sold out for some time, the shows on the Riverfront are free.
