Fans have been making plans as soon as the 2022 Fest week ended and actually that is pretty much the yearly norm. Especially for the seasoned "vets" who know the ropes along with the ins & outs. There is so much going on, so many things to see and attend that it can get overwhelming. I hope this can help some of you catch up. Remember YOU CANNOT DO IT ALL., but you can still have a blast. CMA Fest is uniquely programmed with artists donating their time so a portion of ticket proceeds can be invested in high-quality music education programs across the U.S. through the https://cmafoundation.org
This is Country Music’s Longest-Running Festival which will run from June 8th - June 11th with many things starting earlier in the week, so you have to be prepared. Let's do our best to get you where you need to be to see what you need to do and what you do not need to do.
From humble beginnings as From Fan Fair in 1972, which drew 5,000 attendees to Nashville’s Municipal Auditorium in response to fans bombarding the industry’s annual Country Music DJ convention, the festival has grown into the signature Country Music event for tens of thousands of fans each year from all 50 states and nearly 40 international territories. Having taken several shapes throughout its storied history—from Municipal Auditorium, to the Nashville Speedway Fairgrounds in 1982, to its current footprint in downtown Nashville as of 2001—one thing has remained: there is no other place on earth that offers Country Music fans the unique access and one-of-a-kind personal interactions with their favorite stars. CMA Fest will once again be filmed for a national television special to air on ABC this summer. The “CMA Fest” television special will be executive produced by Robert Deaton.

I am also going to add a VERY helpful sight that a big long standing fan works diligently on to help out with so many questions, lists of events for CMA Fest and more. Ms Debbie does a great job and she deserves applause for it all. Check out: https://www.countrystarphotos.com
