Over the last month, theÂ Country Music AssociationÂ has been releasing this summer’sÂ Nissan StadiumÂ lineup via theÂ CMA FestÂ app. On Â Tuesday, April 12th, the lineup for the Riverfront StageÂ will be released via the app.
In anticipation for this announcement,Â Celeb SecretsÂ is here to bring you our predictions of the lineup. You can read all of our predictions down below and make sure you tweet us your own predictions!
Chris LaneÂ has had a great year thus far; hisÂ FixÂ EP has gotten great traction and he will be hitting the road withÂ Rascal FlattsÂ andÂ Kelsea Ballerini.Â We will not be surprised to see this guy playing theÂ Riverfront Stage.
Dan + ShayÂ have played theÂ Riverfront StageÂ for the last two summers, so we won’t be surprised to see them on the list again this year. With their second album looming, we are looking forward to hearing some new songs from this duo this summer.
Lauren AlainaÂ has grown a lot in the last year; she even sang withÂ Carrie UnderwoodÂ a couple weeks ago at ACM Party For AÂ Cause. This Idol alumÂ is going places and we are confident that theÂ Riverfront StageÂ is one of said places.
The Cadillac ThreeÂ are some of our favorite performers to watch live; this trio never disappoints. We loved watching them on theÂ Riverfront StageÂ last summer and hope we get the pleasure of watching them again this year.
Danielle Bradberry’sÂ latest single,Â Friendzone,Â absolutely blew us away. Honestly, we are dying for new music from her! Every time weÂ check, her fanbase is growing as is sheÂ as an artist. She would be a perfect fit on this stage.
Cassadee PopeÂ blew everyone away at theÂ ACM Awards with her duet withÂ Chris Young.Â Last year, she rocked theÂ Riverfront StageÂ in front of a huge crowd and we are confident that she will do the same this summer!
Honestly, what is CMA FestÂ withoutÂ Hunter Hayes?Â We were hoping to see him on the main stage this year, but since that is not the case, we can settle with seeing him on theÂ Riverfront Stage.Â
Kellie PicklerÂ is another performer who we had the pleasure of seeing on theÂ Riverfront StageÂ last summer.Â PicklerÂ may not have a summer tour announced, but she does have a series of summer dates lined up; there’s conveniently a nice spot forÂ CMA FestÂ in said dates, so let’s pray she will grace us with her presence this summer!
Martina McBrideÂ is hitting the road withÂ Jason AldeanÂ this summer, which conveniently begins afterÂ CMA Fest.Â We think we can count on seeing her on theÂ Riverfront StageÂ this summer.
Maggie RoseÂ is someone that we always love chatting with atÂ CMA Fest.Â For the last two summers, she has blown us away with not only her performance, but her fashion sense on theÂ Riverfront Stage;Â we are hoping for a three-peat.
Maddie & TaeÂ have won over the hearts of many throughout the last year with their fun music and great sense of style. This duo is currently on the road, but we noticed a gap in their schedule whereÂ CMA FestÂ should be; it seems like its meant to be that this duo would be playing the Riverfront Stage.
Canaan SmithÂ is gearing up to hitÂ the road withÂ Brantley Gilbert!Â Conveniently, the routing also left a gap forÂ CMA Fest. 2016 has been a big year forÂ SmithÂ thus far, playing on theÂ RiverfrontÂ Stage would add to that momentum!
The Swon BrothersÂ are a duo that we love chatting with. This duo killed their performance on theÂ RiverfrontÂ Stage last year and we are confident that they will have the opportunity to do the same thing this summer.
RaeLynnÂ is also on the list of performers who played theÂ Riverfront StageÂ last summer. She is spending her summer playing a series of festivals, so addingÂ CMA FestÂ to that list just makes sense.
Eric Paslay’sÂ presence on theÂ RiverfrontÂ Stage was confirmed a few days ago via an interview he did with theÂ Country Music Association.Â
Dustin LynchÂ was one of our favorite performances last year on theÂ RiverfrontÂ stage. He is currently on the road withÂ Luke BryanÂ andÂ Little Big Town, but if those two can take the time to perform on the main stage, we thinkÂ LynchÂ can make an appearance on theÂ RiverfrontÂ Stage.
Scotty McCreeryÂ has been many people’s favorites since his Idol days and he even has a book coming out this May! He has a series of dates booked this summer after he finishes his book tour, but nothing is locked in during the dates ofÂ CMA Fest;Â theÂ RiverfrontÂ Stage is ready for him.
Jana KramerÂ may have just had a baby, but being a motherÂ hasn’t stopped her from touring withÂ Rascal Flatts.Â We are confident that this won’t stop her from performing atÂ CMA Fest. Who knows, maybe Jolie will make an appearance as well.
There you have it, our predictions for the 2016Â Riverfront StageÂ lineup. Make sure you downloadÂ theÂ CMA FestÂ app, so you don’t miss the announcement on Tuesday!
