“CMA Music Festival is all about the fan experience,” said Country Music Association CEO Sarah Trahern in the statement. “Our fans LP Field tickets sold at a record pace, and we wanted to reward loyalty to share this exciting lineup with them for the first time this morning.”

While the relationship between artists and fans is the basis for the event, CMA Music Festival benefits music education programs for needy children. This morning, Thomas Rhett welcomed guests at the Theatre Nashville kids for a performance of “Jack Story: A Mythic Mountain Musical”, which was funded by a $ 10,000 grant from the Foundation of the CMA 2014 CMA Music Festival. Threats of snow in Nashville prevented a majority of students attend but warmly greeted the enthusiastic crowd.

“When I was little, I was in a play called ‘Christmas Carol’. I was Scrooge,” Thomas Rhett told the crowd of students filled. “Music education was very important to me, and today was a good reminder of how clean it is to see the band of country music community together to help give back to you via CMA Fest.”

The CMA Foundation presents grants on behalf of the artists who perform at CMA Music Festival each year for free and donated more than $ 11 million for music education initiatives nationwide since 2006.

Tickets for the evening concerts at LP Field sold out in November. Across the river from the stadium, many choices of free and inexpensive entertainment will be offered to fans around downtown Nashville as part of the CMA Music Festival. Seven stages of free entertainment give fans the opportunity to choose their musical adventure, including the popular Chevrolet Riverfront Stage, which constantly fills the banks of the Cumberland River each of the four days.

AT & T U-verse X Fan Fair at the Music City Center moves the party CMA Music Festival inside, with musical performances on three stages, the artist interactions, meet and greet, shopping and other unique experiences of the fans. Tickets to AT & T U-verse Fan Fair X are now available in (AT & T U-verse X Fan Fair admission is included in four days CMA Music Festival tickets). Tickets AT & T U-verse X Fan Fair are $ 10 per day or $ 25 for a four-day pass.

The evening concerts will be recorded for a three-hour primetime special issue later this summer on ABC.
