May 5, 2010 at 10:27 AM (PT)
According to organizers, The CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL, which is set to be held JUNE 10th-13th in downtown NASHVILLE, will go on as planned despite the flooding in NASHVILLE. A post on www.cmafest.com says the festival will go on as scheduled in the planned venues.
Chairman of the CMA Board of Directors STEVE MOORE said in a statement: “We have had a lot of inquires about the status of 2010 CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL after the devastating flood that hit NASHVILLE over the weekend. Our first thoughts and prayers are with the people of MIDDLE and WEST TENNESSEE who have endured so much tragedy and heartache during these last few days. CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL is NASHVILLE’s signature music event, which brings in more than $22 million in direct visitor spending to the City each year and supports music education in METRO NASHVILLE public schools. We have every intention of holding the event as planned JUNE 10th-13th in downtown NASHVILLE. We cannot think of a better way to help our local economy at this time of great need than to continue the 39-year tradition of CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL.”
The CMA is currently running a contest which will give one lucky winner two seats per year to future CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL events as long as that winner wishes to redeem the prize. The “CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL Lifetime Ticket Giveaway” will run through JUNE 13th and fans can enter now at www.cmafest.com.
MOORE said: "It's the mother of all prizes. In 2011, this legendary event will celebrate its 40th year of bringing artists and fans together. In celebrating the rich history of FAN FAIR and CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL, we also look ahead to the event's next chapter, and we're thrilled our Lifetime Ticket winner will be there for all of the exciting things to come."
