“This show just gets better and better. I’m so excited to be able to stage our evening show as an unplugged and more intimate experience for fans and artists to get closer together, as well as showcase even more amazing talent with a full day of performances that will help us reach more and more folks coming to CMA Fest with our message of love and acceptance for all people. It’s a new day in Nashville. We’ve come a long way since we first hosted this show in 2015. We have a long way to go, but we also have a lot to celebrate. This will be a day to celebrate,” said Herndon.

For the first time ever, the day will kick off with a live Red Carpet Countdown that will take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Margaritaville’s downstairs stage and feature a lineup of artists each performing 30 minute sets.
