“I’ve heard Australians know how to have a good time,” said Aldean. “I have been looking forward to heading down under, but to hear it’s sold out already without ever playing Australia is really cool. We’re going to be sure those fans are talking about our show until the next time we make it over!”

“We started this festival nine years ago with a real belief that if we could deliver an exciting format and world’s best festival standards and practices, Australian and indeed, country fans from across the world, would come out and support the event,” says festival promoter Rob Potts.

“We’re thrilled to announce that for the first time in the festival’s history, CMC Rocks has completely sold out. We couldn’t have achieved this incredible milestone without the support and loyalty of passionate country music lovers from across Australia and New Zealand and thank them for their on-going support,” says promoter Matthew Lazarus Hall of Chugg Entertainment.

From the first incarnation of the festival in 2008, CMC Rocks has grown and evolved to become the key event on the Australian country music calendar. Attracting the biggest global names in country music over the last nine years and now one of Australia’s most recognized annual music events, audience numbers have kept growing year after year.

Foxtel’s 6th Annual CMC Music Awards, a viewer-voted country music awards show, will be held at QPAC Brisbane on March 10. The awards will feature performances by Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Ballerini, and Australian artist Adam Harvey. It is hosted by CMC Rocks ambassador and Australian country superstar Morgan Evans.
