CMA Fest 2019: Headliners You CAN’T Miss!
Mrs. Underwood, currently a Nashville resident, has headlined CMA Fest for a number of years. At last year’s event, she blessed the crowd of 65,000 people with hits such as Church Bells, Undo It, Dirty Laundry, and (of course) Before He Cheats. I’m looking forward to all of the new songs she’s published since this time last year. In November of 2017, Carrie had a frightening fall at her home. She got more than 40 stitches on her face and a broken wrist. She played an incredible show last year and her performance got her fans exhilarated for what’s next. This year, I’m sure we’ll see performances of her newer tracks, Spinning Bottles, Love Wins, The Champion, Cry Pretty, and Southbound!
Keith Urban, a New Zealand-Australian singer, moved to the United States in 1992. Urban has been a long-time affiliate of the CMA event. Keith played a ton of unforgettables last year, such as: Never Comin’ Down, Coming Below, Somewhere in My Car, Blue Ain’t Your Color, The Fighter, and Wasted Time. I’m pumped to see what this Australian-native brings to the table this year!
I’m really hoping that Luke Bryan opens up his set with his new single, Knockin’ Boots. This single is perfect for summer. Every time I listen to it, I just lay back and absorb the sun’s rays. It makes me wanna crack open a Corona and sit on the back of my speed boat. Last year, he played the huge hits: Country Girl (Shake it For Me); Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset; and last year’s favorite, Most People Are Good. What songs of Luke’s are y’all most excited for?
Last year, Kelsea Ballerini hosted ABC’s CMA Fest TV Special with Thomas Rhett. This was the second year in a row they did this. She played fan favorites, such as I Hate Love Songs, Miss Me More, Love Me Like You Mean It, and Legends. I can’t wait to be front row for her set!
I honestly have not had the pleasure of seeing Dierks Bentley live, but I’m pumped to see what all the fuss is about!
Last year, Brothers Osborne played on Day 1 of the festival (Thursday, June 7th). They were an incredible way to open up the weekend! They played some of my favorites like It Ain’t My Fault and Shoot Me Straight. I love Brothers Osborne because he truly combines country music with old-school rock. He knows how to get a crowd going for sure!
Find me shooting front row at CMA Fest! I’ll be there for all 4 days!
