CMA Music Festival is any country music fan’s favorite time of the year. For four days straight, Nashville’s streets are flooded with devoted fans, aspiring artists and everyone who’s anyone in the country music industry. The event hosts countless live performances, meet and greets and autograph signings, but any CMA Fest regular knows that the HGTV Lodge is the hottest ticket in town.
The HGTV Lodge, the festival’s most intimate venue, is returning to CMA Fest June 11 – June 14 with a bigger and better lineup to give festival-goers the ultimate country fan experience. Situated in the heart of Nashville, The Lodge is a 3,500-square-foot wooden structure that hosts four days of star-studded events.
Guests can catch more than 20 live performances and attend meet and greets with some of the biggest names in country music, including Lady Antebellum, Zac Brown Band, Darius Rucker, Josh Turner and Kip Moore. With only 300 attendees during each show, air conditioning and a mobile device charging station, The Lodge is the perfect place to relax and unwind in the middle of the city. For admission to The Lodge, fans can register for free tickets starting May 28 at CMAFest.com.
Great American Country will join HGTV, its sister network, for CMA Fest 2015. Suzanne Alexander, from Great American Country’s Great American Playlist, and Nan Kelley, from Top 20 Countdown, will host the stage at The Lodge each day of the festival. For a midday pick-me-up, festival-goes can visit the Great American Country/Yoplait food truck for a tasty lunch and a free sample of Yoplait Greek 100 yogurt.
