HGTV’s celebrity lineup at the 2015 CMA Music Festival will be the hottest ticket in Nashville when the network returns with its newly expanded Lodge venue—fresh from its mega debut at Super Bowl XLIX in Glendale, Ariz. From Thursday, June 11 – Sunday, June 14, the HGTV Lodge offers Festival-goers the Ultimate Country Music Fan Experience, including live musical performances by popular Country Music stars Zac Brown Band, Lady Antebellum, Darius Rucker and a $4,000 cash giveaway. In addition, DIY Network’s Alison Victoria, HGTV’s David Bromstad, and Great American Country’s Suzanne Alexander and Nan Kelley will co-host the live musical event throughout the week.
“Our venue is 40% larger than last year and hosts our biggest lineup of Country Music stars to date—not to mention provides a cozy ‘home’ environment Festival-goers won’t find anywhere else.”
-Shannon Jamieson Driver
Senior VP, Marketing and Creative, HGTV and DIY Network
