The 2016 CMA Music Festival will be chock full of country stars, including those just announced to play the Riverfront Park stage. One of the highlights? The one and only Jake Owen.

Owen will kick off CMA Fest's free Riverfront Park shows on Thursday (June 9). He's one of almost 40 artists who will perform on that stage throughout the four-day festival, which runs June 9-12. Fans will be able to hear songs such as "My Church," "Burning House," "Kiss You in the Morning" and "Girl in a Country Song," as the other artists scheduled to play at Riverfront Park include Rodney Atkins, Terri Clark, Charles Esten, Tyler Farr, Jana Kramer, Tracy Lawrence, Aaron Lewis, LoCash, Love and Theft, Maddie & Tae, Neal McCoy, Scotty McCreery, Lorrie Morgan, Jon Pardi, Parmalee, Eric Paslay, Kellie Pickler, Canaan Smith, Corey Smith, the Cadillac Three, Thompson Square, Phil Vassar, Darryl Worley, A Thousand Horses, Brothers Osborne, Kane Brown, Cam, Chase Bryant, Brandy Clark, Brooke Eden, High Valley, Home Free, Chris Janson, Chris Lane, Maren Morris, Old Dominion, Michael Ray and Granger Smith.

Owen will be arriving at the Riverfront Park stage, appropriately, via boat -- and he'll be riding the waters with a sweepstakes winner and guest, both of whom will also receive two tickets to the CMA Music Festival, including airfare and hotel accommodations. For more information or to enter, visit the CMA Music Festival's website.

Though CMA Fest's nightly shows at Nissan Stadium are sold out, tickets are still available for Fan Fair X inside the Music City Center, and the Riverfront Park performances are free and open to the public. Fans can stay up to date on events and tickets via the CMA Music Festival website.
