We were pretty disappointed to not see Hunter Hayes rocking out on the main stage of last year’s CMA Fest, which makes us even more hopeful that he will be gracing us with his presence this June. Hunter made a big splash in 2015 with his latest single, “21,” which makes us confident that he will be at Nissan Stadium playing it live.

Brett Eldredge spent the fall promoting his latest album, Illinois. It’s time for him to come to Nashville and allow fans to all fall in love with that album even more.

Zac Brown Band

Zac Brown Band has always held a special place in our hearts and honestly, we just couldn’t picture CMA Fest without them. The group will be on the Black Out The Sun Tour with Drake White throughout the spring and summer, but there happens to be the perfect break in the schedule for CMA Fest.

Cole Swindell’s latest single, “You Should Be Here,” is burning up the charts in the country music scene. Nothing would make more sense to us than to have him join CMA Fest once again this year.


Thomas Rhett stole our hearts years ago and we couldn’t have been happier to watch him make his Nissan Stadium debut last summer. We cannot wait to be nothing but heart eyes over him this summer as he plays songs from his album Tangled Up on the main stage.


The Band Perry is nothing shy of a power trio in country music; they are some of our favorite siblings. Their latest album, Heart Plus Beat, does not disappoint and deserves to have its own Nissan Stadium debut.

Little Big Town (L-R) Guitarist Phillip Sweet, Vocalist Karen Fairchild, Vocalist Kimberly Schlapman, Guitarist Jimi Westbrook.

Little Big Town has helped everyone embrace their “girl crush” with their hit single, Girl Crush, throughout all of 2015. We’ve loved seeing them all over our TVs from Sesame Street to The Talk to Project Runway and cannot imagine not seeing them slay at CMA Fest.

Miranda Lambert is the epitome of a power female, especially in the country world. We missed her immensely last year at CMA Fest and we’ve happened to notice that she has the perfect time off for CMA Fest in her touring schedule.


Florida Georgia Line is about to hit the road for their Dig Your Roots Tour. Like many others, there happens to be a gap in their touring schedule where CMA Fest would belong, so we will see you boys in Nashville!

Eric Church ended 2015 on a high note with his latest album, Mr. Misunderstood. Eric is going to be spending some time in Vegas this spring, but we are hopeful that he will take some time to head out to Nashville for CMA Fest.

Keith Urban always puts on a good show, no one can deny that! You are probably tired of hearing us say this, but he too has left space on his world tour for the dates of CMA Fest!

Sam Hunt had everyone talking about house parties all last summer and continued to blow everyone away with his acoustic mixtape. We are hoping that he won’t “make us miss him” this summer by not attending CMA Fest and instead he will leaving the missing to his latest single, Make You Miss Me.

Luke Bryan performs “Country Girl (Shake It for Me)” at “The 45th Annual CMA Awards,” Country Music’s Biggest Night, on Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2011 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

Luke Bryan is about to kick off the Kill The Lights tour and release a new single, both of which we cannot wait for. Unlike many of his peers, he only has one day off during CMA Fest, but we are hopeful that we can still count on seeing him this summer in Nashville.

Pandora Presents: Tim McGraw

Earlier this year, Tim McGraw released his latest single, Humble and Kind, which lead to Oprah herself talking about it! CMA Fest would not be complete without the king of country himself, so we think we can count on seeing Tim in Nashville this June.


Kelsea Ballerini is one of country’s most up-and-coming females and we think that she will be making her Nissan Stadium debut this June. This girl is making moves and touring with Rascal Flatts all spring long!

And there you have it, our predictions for this summer’s CMA Fest Nissan Stadium lineup! Remember, Country Music Association will be announcing the lineup starting tomorrow, so make sure you check back and don’t miss any of the news!
