CMA Music Festival is the premiere country music festival, held each summer in Nashville, bringing fans from around the world to experience great music, obtain autographs, attend fan club parties, and much more.
This year's CMA Music Festival will be held June 6-9, and the first artists have been announced who will be performing on the LP Field stages. Lady Antebellum, Luke Bryan, Little Big Town and Carrie Underwood are just the first artists to sign on to perform. The stars do not receive compensation for their performances, and money earned from ticket sales goes to help purchase musical instruments and supplies, providing thousands of students with the resources and opportunities they could not have afforded on their own, and giving many of them the motivation to remain in school.
To date over 6.1 million has been raised for the cause. The total also includes a $1 million endowment for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s Words & Music program, which assists language arts and music teachers with classroom instruction in the basics of songwriting. CMA will announce the donation from the 2012 CMA Music Festival in February.
During the 2012 CMA Music Festival, over 450 artists participated, performing over 200 hours of concerts. The event drew a record 71,000 fans daily from all 50 states and 24 nations and for the third consecutive year sold out each nightly concert at LP Field.
For the 10th consecutive year, there will be a television special taped, which will air on the ABC Television Network later this year.
