CMA Announces Music Fest Performers

The Country Music Association has announced the first group of performers booked for the upcoming 2010 CMA Music Festival. Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Darius Rucker, Keith Urban, and Zac Brown Band, along with the previously announced Carrie Underwood, are the first artists to be announced for 2010.

More than 2,000 country acts, including the superstars of the format, have lent their time and talent to the event over the decades. It is a legacy that began 39 years ago with legends including Chet Atkins, Waylon Jennings, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, and Tammy Wynette thanking fans at the Municipal Auditorium in Nashville.

CMA Music Festival is a unique celebration of the relationship between country artists and their fans in the heart of Music City USA. The artists participate for free, and in appreciation, CMA donates half the net proceeds of the Festival to support music education in Metro Nashville Public Schools through the Keep the Music Playing program. To date, $3,312,053 has been donated to purchase musical instruments and supplies, providing thousands of Metro Nashville Public Schools students with the resources and opportunities they could not have afforded on their own, giving many of them a strong reason to remain in school.

The 2010 CMA Music Festival will be held Thursday through Sunday, June 10-13. Nashville’s signature music event features concerts, autograph signings, family activities, and more.
