Tucker Beathard, Jake Owen, Blake Shelton and More Book 2017 CMA Fest Events
The stars are aligning for the 2017 CMA Music Festival in Nashville this June. In addition to the festival’s free shows and nightly Nissan Stadium concerts starring Blake Shelton, Kelsea Ballerini, Chris Stapleton and a slew of other big acts, more artists have announced some other events they’ll be at throughout the week.
Per Rolling Stone, Jake Owen will be the headliner for the third annual Pandora Sounds Like Country show, scheduled to take place on June 6 — the Tuesday of CMA Fest Week — at Marathon Music Works. Owen will be joined by Old Dominion and RaeLynn at the event, one of a few already announced to lead into the festival.
Another new addition the 2017 CMA Music Festival calendar is the first-annual Wrecking Ball concert. Co-headlined by Tucker Beathard and Ryan Hurd, the after-hours party is scheduled for June 7 at 3rd and Lindsley, immediately following the 2017 CMT Music Awards; more information is available on the venue’s website. If you’re not overly familiar with the two up-and-comers: Beathard made waves in 2016 with his Top 5 debut track “Rock On,” and Hurd has been touring with his girlfriend, Maren Morris, another headlining act at CMA Fest 2017.
The Grand Ole Opry has also announced a special CMA Fest Week show featuring Opry members Shelton, Trace Adkins and the Oak Ridge Boys, as well as Tracy Lawrence, on June 8. Visit Opry.com for ticketing details.
The 2017 CMA Music Festival is scheduled to run June 8-11 in Nashville. For more information on tickets and performers at CMA Fest 2017, visit the CMA Music Festival’s official website.
