The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum will welcome thousands of country music fans to CMA Music Festival, June 9 to 12. All week, the museum will host autograph signings, performances and special programs, presented by Comcast, including just added signings with Mark Chesnutt, Dan + Shay, Brenda Lee, Lonestar and Charley Pride. More signings will be announced in the days leading up to Music Fest.
These artists join an already packed week of activity that includes an appearance by Blake Shelton in support of the new exhibition Blake Shelton: Based on a True Story, supported by SunTrust, as well as appearances by Gary Allan, Bill Anderson, Brandy Clark, Mickey Guyton, Oak Ridge Boys, RaeLynn, Aubrie Sellers and more. The museum will also host the only Nashville book signing with Scotty McCreery, who will be signing his new book, Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream.
In addition, visitors will get a first look at the newest installation of the museum’s ACM Gallery, including artifacts representing today’s hottest country artists, from Chris Stapleton to Kelsea Ballerini. With all-new additions, the ACM Gallery chronicles the latest chapter in country music’s ever-evolving story through a behind-the-scenes look at all things new and noteworthy from 2015. The update will include artifacts from Luke Bryan, Cam, Chris Janson, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Aubrie Sellers, Cole Swindell and more.
Election to the Country Music Hall of Fame is country music’s highest honor. Charlie Daniels, a 2016 inductee, will share stories of his career and discuss what it means to be included in this elite group with Music Fest attendees. WSM radio host Bill Cody will interview Daniels on the Close Up Stage at Fan Fair X located in the Music City Center on June 9 at 1:15 p.m.
