“We are so excited to be a part of CMA Fest this year by headlining Ascend Amphitheater with a handful of our favorite artists including Boy Named Banjo, Randy Rogers Band, Elvie and Tenille,” says The Cadillac Three. “Being born and raised in Nashville, we’ve been coming to CMA Fest since it was Fan Fair and it’s an honor to get to be a part of the party again. It’ll be a special show and we can’t wait to bring a little Country Fuzz to downtown Nashville on a Friday night!”

Tickets are required for entry and start at $15, taxes and fees included. The public on-sale begins Friday, May 12th at 10 am CT.

All CMA Fest stage lineups are available in the Official CMA Fest App and on CMAFest.com. All artist lineups are subject to change. Additional programming will be announced in the coming weeks.

The 50th annual CMA Fest returns to downtown Nashville Thursday through Sunday, June 8-11, featuring hundreds of artists performing across multiple stages and offering fans from around the globe a festival experience unlike any other.
