Eric Church Added to 2019 CMA Fest Nissan Stadium Lineup
Eric Church is returning to CMA Fest in 2019! The Chief will perform on Friday, June 7, at Nissan Stadium in Nashville.
Church's last CMA Fest performance was in 2017 to rave reviews. He will be performing at CMA Fest in 2019 between shows during his Double Down Tour. He just made history at Nissan Stadium during the Nashville show of the tour on May 25 by setting a new attendance record, with 56,521 people in the audience (the venue holds 60,000.)
Church is the first solo artist to perform at Nissan Stadium without an opening act, performing solo for more than three hours. “If I die up here, I’m gonna die up here," Church said on stage. "I’m gonna give you all I got.”
