CMA Fest 2019: Dierks Bentley, Maren Morris + More Join the Lineup
The Country Music Association has announced the initial lineup for CMA Fest 2019! The annual event will feature hundreds of country artists -- up-and-coming acts, established superstars and classic names -- across multiple stages throughout downtown Nashville.
Once again, Nissan Stadium will host nightly concerts featuring some of today's biggest country music names. The lineup for this year's shows includes Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne, Kane Brown, Luke Bryan, Luke Combs, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, Maren Morris, Old Dominion, the Pistol Annies, Rascal Flatts, Thomas Rhett, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban.
Also in 2019, CMA Fest will feature daytime performances on the Chevy Riverfront Stage. Lauren Alaina, Devin Dawson, the Eli Young Band, Walker Hayes, Ashley McBryde, Aaron Watson and many more are scheduled to perform there. Over on the Budweiser Forever Country Stage, meanwhile, Deana Carter, Lonestar, Lorrie Morgan, Ricky Skaggs and numerous others will take the stage during the festival's four days.
Additional stages and their lineups will be announced in the coming weeks. Daytime stage performances are free and open to the public, while the Nissan Stadium performances require a ticket. More CMA Fest 2019 activities, including the lineup for Fan Fair X, have yet to be announced as well.
CMA Fest 2019 is scheduled for June 6-9; the event is the longest-running country music festival in the world and will once again be filmed for an ABC TV special to air later in the summer. The artists who perform during the event donate their time, so proceeds go to the CMA Foundation, which benefits music programs across the United States.
