HGTV Returns To CMA Music Fest With Stellar Performance Lineup

HGTV-LodgeHGTV’s side stage for the 2015 CMA Music Festival will return to downtown Nashville with a newly expanded Lodge venue—a 3,500 sq. ft., air-conditioned, VIP lounge with 900 sq. ft. on the mezzanine that comes straight from the Super Bowl XLIX in Glendale, Ariz.

From June 11-14, artists (schedule below) will deliver performances on the hour. There will also be $4,000 in total cash giveaways during the week. DIY Network’s Alison Victoria, HGTV’s David Bromstad, and Great American Country’s Suzanne Alexander and Nan Kelley will co-host the live musical events.

“The HGTV Lodge is back this year with a bigger and better experience for country music fans,” said Shannon Jamieson Driver, senior vice president, marketing and creative, HGTV and DIY Network. “Our venue is 40-percent larger than last year and hosts our biggest lineup of country music stars to date–not to mention provides a cozy ‘home’ environment festival-goers won’t find anywhere else.”
