One aspiring artist will get a shot at performing during this year’s CMA Music Festival, thanks to AT&T U-Verse. The Country Deep Rising Star Contest is offering rising performers a chance to attend the 2015 CMA Music Festival and to perform on the AT&T U-Verse Showcase Stage.
The winner will join a packed lineup that includes appearances from Lauren Alaina, Katie Armiger, Craig Campbell, Amber Carrington, Kristy Lee Cook, Joel Crouse, Jessie James Decker, Travis Denning, Eric Dodd, Cale Dodds, Elizabeth Huett, Savannah Keyes, Ryan Kinder, Love and Theft, Rachele Lynae, Dustin Lynch, MamaDear, Kristen Merlin, Katie Ohh, Angaleena Presley, Rainey Qualley, Ray Scott, Sister C, The Railers, Aaron Watson, and more to be announced.
Interested artists can apply at risingstar.att.com through May 10.
CMA Music Festival’s Fan Fair X has contest opportunities for fans with no musical ambitions, as well.
For many of the artist appearances at Fan Fair X, most signings do not require tickets. Fans can freely join the line formations for autographs and meet-and-greets for non-ticketed artist signings.
Fans can sign up for the ticket drawing for meet and greet sessions, fan experiences including front-row seats at the CMA Close Up Stage, a “Fast Pass” for the CMA booth, tickets to the 2016 CMA Music Festival, and more. Fans can enter to win these experiences at cmafest.com from May 28 (beginning at 10 a.m. CT) through June 1 (ending at 11:59 p.m. CT).
Fans will be prompted to create an account and complete the online entry form by selecting the artist they would like to meet from the list of ticketed meet-and-greet sessions. Only one account per person is permitted and fans can only be selected once.
Once the form is complete, fans are automatically entered into the random ticket drawing for each artist selected. If drawn, the fan will receive two tickets to that session. Winners will be notified by email by Friday, June 5.
AT&T U-verse Fan Fair X is free to all CMA Music Festival LP Field ticket holders. Individual tickets are $10 per day. A $25 for a four-day pass, or $35 four-day pass including one general admission into the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum for 2015 is available at CMAfest.com.
