The CMA (COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION) announced TODAY (2/18) that RASCAL FLATTS, KEITH URBAN, REBA McENTIRE, BRAD PAISLEY, MARTINA McBRIDE, DARIUS RUCKER, JASON ALDEAN, LADY ANTEBELLUM and the ZAC BROWN BAND are slated to take the stage at the 2010 CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL’s nightly concerts at LP FIELD.
This year’s event will take place in downtown NASHVILLE JUNE 10th-13th. These artists join the bill with previously-announced performer, CARRIE UNDERWOOD (NET NEWS 2/5).
Every artist donates their time for the festival, with half the net proceeds benefiting METRO NASHVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS through the KEEP THE MUSIC PLAYING program. More than $3 million has been raised thus far for music education. Over $1 million alone was raised at last year’s CMA FEST.
Additional performers and participants for this year’s event will be announced in the coming months. Tickets are on sale now at www.cmafest.com and www.ticketmaster.com. The CMA has also launched MYSPACE and FACEBOOK pages at www.MySpace.com/cmamusicfestival and www.facebook.com/CountryMusicAssociation. The new CMAfest.com will allow fans to submit their own festival stories and photos, and the site will also feature an updated blog.
