Blake Shelton Leads CMA Fest 2016’s Saturday Night Lineup
CMA Fest 2016’s Saturday night lineup was revealed on the festival’s app Wednesday morning (March 23), and the star power continues at Nissan Stadium. Chris Young, Cole Swindell, Florida Georgia Line and Blake Shelton will each take the stage on Saturday, June 11.
The nightly CMA Fest lineup is an impressive one. Friday night’s roster includes performances by Eric Church, Sam Hunt, Chris Stapleton, Carrie Underwood and Hank Williams Jr. Recently, Kelsea Ballerini was added to Thursday night’s lineup, announcing the big news on her Twitter page on Tuesday (March 22), before her CMA Twitter chat with fans. She joins previously-announced Thursday acts Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert and Rascal Flatts.

“The fans are the heart of CMA Music Festival,” CMA Chief Executive Officer Sarah Trahern explains in a press release. “Nissan Stadium sells out every year before we announce who will be performing, and it is fitting that those fans who support this event so loyally should be the first to see this outstanding lineup.”
The 2016 CMA Music Festival runs Thursday through Sunday, June 9-12 in downtown Nashville. While the festival boasts numerous free stages and unique fan experiences, the most anticipated events are the nightly concerts at Nissan Stadium.
All of the stadium events at CMA Festival 2016 are sold out, but fans can still purchase Fan Fair X tickets, which include entrance into free concerts, unique fan experiences and a general admission ticket to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum that is good for use any day in 2016.
