Jason Aldean and More Country Artists Join All-Star CMA Fest Lineup
A little less than a month before CMA Music Fest is set to begin in Nashville, Tenn., the Country Music Association has announced that Jason Aldean will headline Nissan Stadium during the festival's first evening, on June 7. The four-day music festival will span from June 7-June 10, 2018.
Carrie Underwood (June 8), Keith Urban (June 9) and Luke Bryan (June 10) are all also scheduled for headlining spots at Nissan Stadium. During Aldean's Thursday evening performance, other acts onstage will include Kane Brown, Lauren Alaina, Dan + Shay, Carly Pearce, Brothers Osborne and Darius Rucker.
In addition to his own headlining performance, Bryan will also join Dierks Bentley, Kelsea Ballerini and Dustin Lynch as a spotlight artist during XFinity Fan Fair X on the CMA Close Up Stage. Each day, the CMA Close Up Stage will spotlight one artist and allow fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse into that artist's career.
In addition to fleshing out the headlining lineup, the Country Music Association has also announced the weekend's national anthem performers. Each evening of music at Nissan Stadium will kick off with a performance of the anthem, and this year's singers will include The Oak Ridge Boys, backed by the Marine Corps Band New Orleans (June 7), 'Walmart Yodeling Boy' Mason Ramsey (June 8), Jillian Jacqueline (June 9) and Ray Stevens (June 10).
A limited number of four-day pass tickets to the nightly Nissan Stadium shows are available here. Additionally, tickets for XFinity Fan Fair X are available for $10 per day or $25 for a four-day pass. The stadium will open at 6PM each evening, with performances beginning at 8PM.
