CMA Fest marked its big return to Nashville this past weekend (June 9-12), following a two-year postponement due to the pandemic.

“We did it! It had been 1099 days since we last kicked off CMA Fest (in 2019), and to finally be here feels incredible!” says Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “So many emotions have gone through my head this week, but I think gratitude sums it up best. Seeing the fans return to Nashville or visit us for the very first time is so heartwarming, and welcoming back our artists and the music community after two difficult years means so much. It truly takes a village to pull off this event—thank you to all of our partners within Nashville and beyond for helping us bring CMA Fest back!”

There were more than 80,000 estimated attendees from all 50 states and a record-breaking 39 foreign countries as they filled Music City in anticipation of seeing more than 260 acts taking part in CMA Fest. Officially kicking off on Thursday morning with reigning CMA New Artist of the Year Jimmie Allen taking the Chevy Riverfront Stage, CMA Fest brought an eclectic mix of music to downtown Nashville throughout the entire weekend. In addition to the Chevy Riverfront Stage, free outdoor daytime activity included performances at the Dr Pepper Amp Stage, Chevy Vibes Stage and Maui Jim Reverb Stage. Fans also experienced one-of-a-kind programming at Fan Fair X inside Music City Center, along with several brand activations and partners that took over Lower Broadway.

Fans also packed the house at Nissan Stadium every night and in true CMA Fest tradition, there was no shortage of surprise collaborations. Kicking things off on Thursday night was Darius Rucker joining Zac Brown Band to a fan rousing performance of “Chicken Fried.” Zac Brown Band also brought out two special guests—Marcus King for “Stubborn Pride” and King Calaway for “When I Get Home.” Dustin Lynch and MacKenzie Porter brought the energy way up with a performance of “Thinking ‘Bout You.” Taking the stadium stage on Friday night, for the first time since 2015, Wynonna Judd joined reigning CMA Female Vocalist of the Year Carly Pearce for a touching rendition of “Why Not Me” that brought the fans to their feet. Cole Swindell also welcomed Lainey Wilson for an electric performance of “Never Say Never.” Fan reaction was deafening in the house on Sunday night as well, when Billy Ray Cyrus took the stage alongside Dierks Bentley for “Achy Breaky Heart,” followed by Elle King stepping in with Bentley during “Devil Went Down To Georgia.” Elle King also hit the stage to perform “Ex’s and Oh’s” with Ashley McBryde. Additional surprises included Lady A bringing BRELAND out for a heartwarming performance of “Need You Now,” while Russell Dickerson was joined by Jake Scott for “She Likes It.”

Other Nissan Stadium highlights throughout the weekend included Luke Bryan lighting up the house during a touching performance of “Drink A Beer,” followed by fan favorites “Knockin’ Boots” and “Country Girl (Shake it for Me).” Keith Urban brought fans to their feet during “Days Go By” and “Wasted Time.” Luke Combs brought the house down with “Beer Never Broke My Heart.” Old Dominion performed “Chattahoochee” as a tribute to Country Music Hall of Famer Alan Jackson and capped their set with a rousing version of “I Was On A Boat That Day.” Fans danced in their seats during Jason Aldean’s “Dirt Road Anthem,” Kane Brown’s “One Mississippi” and Thomas Rhett’s “T-Shirt.” Brothers Osborne brought large dancing skeletons onstage during their energetic performance of “All Night,” closing with the upbeat anthem “It Ain’t My Fault.” Carrie Underwood’s soulful performance of “Jesus, Take The Wheel” took fans to church when she transitioned the song into “How Great Thou Art.” Fans leapt to their feet, singing along to Gabby Barrett’s “I Hope,” Kelsea Ballerini’s “Half Of My Hometown” and Parker McCollum’s “To Be Loved By You.”

Additional performers at Nissan Stadium included opening acts Deana Carter, Sara Evans, Everette, Randy Houser, Angie K, Kylie Morgan and Shenandoah, as well as performances from the new Platform Stage in the center of the stadium, featuring Priscilla Block, Madeline Edwards, Kat & Alex, Maddie & Tae, Frank Ray, Lily Rose, Dylan Scott, and Mitchell Tenpenny. Brittney Spencer also welcomed the Nissan Stadium crowd Thursday night performing the National Anthem.

The Nighttime Concerts at Ascend Amphitheater also returned for a fourth year, with packed crowds both Friday and Saturday night. The party kicked off Friday night with headliner Chris Janson exuding his all-in energy. Additional acts taking the stage included Boy Named Banjo, LANCO, Mitchell Tenpenny and Peytan Porter. Saturday night attendees were treated to headliner Cole Swindell, who brought the audience to their feet when he welcomed Country Music Hall of Fame member Randy Travis to the stage. In addition to Swindell, Ingrid Andress, Avery Anna, Randall King, Shy Carter and Tyler Braden took the amphitheater stage.

Throughout the four-day event, fans enjoyed more than 173,000 square feet of air-conditioned fun at Fan Fair X inside Music City Center where artists participated in meet-and-greets and programming on two indoor stages, including the CMA Close Up Stage, which hosted the popular Artist of the Day sessions featuring Russell Dickerson on Thursday, Kelsea Ballerini on Friday, Luke Bryan on Saturday and Chris Tomlin on Sunday. Other standout programming included a She Is the Music songwriters round led by Hillary Scott with Catie Offerman, Sacha, and Caitlyn Smith; a round of acoustic performances curated by the Black Opry featuring Tylar Bryant, Roberta Lea, The Kentucky Gentlemen and Julie Williams; a fashion show featuring Jessie James Decker’s Kittenish line modeled by several of CMT’s Next Women of Country including Alyssa Bonagura, Laci Kaye Booth, Callista Clark, Julie Cole, Lindsay Ell, Maddie & Tae, RaeLynn and Sacha and a discussion hosted by Black Music Month co-founder Dyana Williams, featuring BRELAND, Blanco Brown, Shy Carter and Frankie Staton highlighting Amazon Music’s “For Love & Country.”

Fan Fair X also hosted daily performances on the Spotlight Stage from nearly 50 artists performing to full audiences. Country Music Hall of Fame member Bill Anderson along with Deana Carter, Cowboy Troy, Chris Janson, Kat & Alex, Maddie & Tae, Madeline Edwards, Joe Nichols, and dozens of other artists, participated in the much-anticipated meet-and-greets with excited fans. Comedic magician Justin Willman concluded Fan Fair X activities on Sunday, sharing magical inspiration for Papa Murphy’s new program “Bake Outside The Lines,” where fans can submit pizza hacks to win $25,000 and free pizza for a year at Bakeoutsidethelines.com.

CMA’s international presence remained strong as ever at CMA Fest this year, with performances by artists from multiple countries including the U.K., Canada, New Zealand and Australia. The CMA Close Up Stage at Fan Fair X inside Music City Center hosted an international songwriter round featuring Kenny Foster (U.S.), Twinnie (U.K.), Max Jackson (AU) and Kaylee Bell (NZ). CMA also welcomed industry to Nashville during its annual international reception, including several attendees from the organization’s international task forces as well as international promoters, media outlets and artists.

This year, CMA Fest welcomed ten students from CMA Foundation Music Teacher of Excellence, Danielle Leigh Taylor’s music class at Nashville’s Mt. View Elementary School for a heartwarming performance of Jimmie Allen’s song “Best Shot.” The group performed alongside Allen on the CMA Close Up Stage on Thursday as a part of Allen’s panel, “My Voice Is A Trumpet: A Reading and Conversation with Jimmie Allen and Cody Alan,” which was centered around Allen’s children’s book, “My Voice Is A Trumpet.” Additionally, Chattanooga High School Center for Creative Arts students of 2020 Music Teacher of Excellence Neshawn Calloway, took the stage with CMA Foundation Artist Ambassador Filmore on the Dr Pepper Amp Stage at Ascend Park on Sunday to perform Filmore’s song “Other Girl.”

On Thursday morning at the Chevy Riverfront Stage, Jewelry Television (JTV), the national jewelry retailer and broadcast network presented the CMA Foundation with a check for more than $172,000. The donation comes as a result of JTV’s Back the Beat campaign, which ran from Oct. 1 through Nov. 15, 2021, and centered around a commemorative keychain sold exclusively by JTV to benefit the CMA Foundation. CMA Foundation Artist Ambassadors Jimmie Allen and Lindsay Ell, alongside CMA CEO Sarah Trahern and CMA Foundation Executive Director, Tiffany Kerns accepted the donation from Tim Engle, JTV Executive Advisor to digital commerce on behalf of the Foundation.

On the heels of his project Bettie James,  Jimmie Allen will release his new album Bettie James Gold Edition on June 25, 2021 via BBR Music Group / Stoney Creek Records.

I got a chance to work with legends! When I was writing some of the songs, I was trying to picture each moment. I went to each artist to work with them so they could be who they are on the song and bring their greatness to the song – I feel like that’s what makes the songs better. I’m super proud of the body of work of this album and can’t wait for people to hear it.”
 
Bettie James Gold Edition is a continued homage to Allen’s late father, James Allen, and late grandmother, Bettie Snead, who passed away in September 2019 and February 2014 respectively.
 
Allen recently announced the inaugural Bettie James Fest, his own music festival taking place August 7 at Hudson Fields in Allen’s hometown of Milton, DE. The line-up features Allen headlining and special guests DJ Jazzy Jeff, Neon Union, Hero the Band, Chuck Wicks and Chase Martin. A proud Milton native, Allen is consistently vocal about his deep reverence for his family, hometown, and home state of Delaware. “I’m hoping their memory lives on through this festival,” he says.

Due to the unprecedented circumstances surrounding the coronavirus, the spring leg of Dan + Shay The (Arena) Tour has been postponed. The tour has been rescheduled, and previously purchased tickets will be honored for all dates as outlined below. Check venue websites for updates and further information.

From Dan + Shay:

Well, here we are. March 12, 2020, sitting in a bus parked outside Wells Fargo Center, making a statement we never thought we’d have to make. After the mandatory postponement of our Philadelphia show, and several others in the coming weeks, we have made the collective decision (with our team and health officials) to postpone the spring leg of THE (ARENA) TOUR. These shows mean the world to us, and it was important that they be postponed and not canceled, but more than the shows, our fans mean the world to us, and protecting their safety is the number one priority. We want the shows to be memorable, and not experienced with fear.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding. It is a strange, strange time for all of us, but we felt this was the right thing to do. Previously purchased tickets will be honored at all rescheduled dates. We hope everyone can make it. Keep an eye on venue websites for further information and updates. Stay safe out there.

Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Reba McEntire, Chris Stapleton, Little Big Town, Lanco, Cole Swindell, Lee Brice and Ryan Hurd have all had to cancel some shows.

For pop country duo SixForty1, their journey to find their sound and place in Nashville music scene can be best compared to a winding road – much like their name. “My cousin came up with the name, after US-641. It cuts through Murray, where Austin and I met,” says member Brooks Hoffman. “It’s a road that brings a lot of people together, which is what we try to do with our music,” adds fellow member Austin Gee. Their early success proves the duo has done just that. With latest single “Plane Crazy” at nearly 600k streams, a recent booking deal with Creative Artist Agency (CAA), and hundreds of hometown fans behind them, there’s little doubt the boys of SixForty1 have found their footing and are quickly paving their way to a place amongst the genre’s top artists.

The duo has released two new songs “I Get That” and “Show You Around.” (Listen here) Both songs were written by Hoffman and Gee and were produced by Nashville’s Matt Geroux. In a short time, they have joined several acts on tour including Brantley Gilbert, Michael Ray, Walker Hayes and Muscadine Bloodline.

SixForty1 will close out their 2019 playing Brantley Gilbert’s Kick It in the Ship Cruise along with – Brantley Gilbert, Chase Rice, LANCO, Jon Langston, Colt Ford, Danielle Bradberry and Diamond Rio .

The best-selling duo of all time, Brooks & Dunn, debuts at No. One this week on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with their collaboration project REBOOT. The impressive feat marks the first time the duo has topped the album charts since 2009 while simultaneously earning the duo their 10th Billboard 200 Top 10 album, the most of any country duo or group in the chart’s history. The 12-track collection produced by Dann Huff “revisits some of the duo’s most iconic songs with Country’s up and coming talent including Kane Brown, Thomas Rhett, Brett Young, LANCO, Ashley McBryde, Brothers Osborne, Luke Combs, Midland, Cody Johnson, Jon Pardi, Tyler Booth and Kacey Musgraves.

“We always said that after all the crazy highs we’ve had along this journey, that the most important thing to us was that the music that held up over time,” said Ronnie Dunn. “To have a No. One record with these songs we love is wild and we’re so happy to have worked on this project with so many current talents. It is a testament to the power of collaboration.”

“These songs are so important to us, and we’re so thankful that they have had this chance to have new life breathed into them,” added Kix Brooks. “We had so much fun in the studio with everyone, it’s been a really special project for us.”

With 20 No. One hits stretching back to 1991, two Grammy awards, dozens of ACM and CMA honors and a discography counting more album sales than any duo in history – regardless of genre – Brooks & Dunn’s influence on today’s country has never been in question. Hits like “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” “My Maria,” “Only in America,” and “Believe” have propelled the duo to more than 30 million albums sold.
