CMA Music Festival Tickets for Sale

Every June, the Country Music Association takes four days to display country music at its best. The first CMA Music Festival tickets were available in 1972 for what was a Fan Fair. That small fan has grown exponentially, now approaching 400 artists every year in Nashville, the capital for country music. Each year almost 400,000 fans from states throughout the union and countries around the world come to listen to the star studded festival schedule and more are coming every summer. In 2007 alone the attendance increased a record 8.3 percent.

The festival gives country music fans a chance to partake in what amounts to over 30 hours of autograph signing, 150 hours of concerts, and the opportunity to enjoy the established stars and the next big thing for the genre. Half the proceeds from the music festival tickets are donated to charity and the other half are used by the CMA to advance country music. In 2001 this meant that over $200,000 was given to charity.

The CMA Music Festival began in the Municipal Auditorium in 1972, with a capacity for just about 5,000, but by the third year, the music festival had moved to the Tennessee State fairgrounds. Then this was still a small, one day event. It had been graced by country artists like Garth Brooks and non-country acts like Paul McCartney, but in 2001 the next step was taken to move the CMA Music Festival from single day tickets to a whole weekend. Networks like ABC began to pick up the coverage of the festival and the number of festival attendees and artists continued to increase dramatically.

The 2009 CMA Music Festival tickets will include country stars like Tracy Adkins, Brooks & Dunn, Reba McEntire, Brad Paisely, and Taylor Swift. These and many other country artists will play and make appearances at various stages, like he VAULT Concert stage at LP Field, Riverfront Park, Greased Lightening Fan Fair Hall, Acoustic Corner Stage at the Fan Fair Hall, Dr. Pepper-McDonald's Family Zone, Chevy Sports Zone, and Music City Zone.
