It’s hard to believe the CMA Music Festival is only a few months away. As line-ups are finalized, the CMA is working to get fans excited about the event running June 10-13 in Nashville. The Country Music Association and iTunes® have teamed up to offer a free digital music sampler, available through May 1 here.
The sampler includes Trailer Choir “Rolling Through the Sunshine,” Burns & Poe “Don’t Get No Better Than That,” Ash Bowers “Stuck,” Derek Sholl “When They Come Back,” and Veronica Ballestrini “Don’t Say.”
Plans are also underway for the 20th Annual City of Hope Celebrity Softball Challenge. Carrie Underwood and Luke Bryan have already signed on to play in the fundraiser for City of Hope which unofficially kicks-off the 2010 CMA Music Festival. The game is Monday, June 6, 2010, 7 PM at Greer Stadium in Nashville. A special package via Ticketmaster offers four tickets for $60. To date, the Celebrity Softball Challenge has raised over $2 million, with all proceeds benefiting City of Hope.
