Reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year Garth Brooks and three-time Grammy Award-winning vocalist Trisha Yearwood will present a donation on behalf of HGTV to the CMA Foundation, which supports quality, sustainable music education programs, at the HGTV Lodge on Thursday, June 8, at 3:30 p.m. CT during CMA Music Festival. The HGTV Lodge, a popular venue for CMA Music Festival goers, will host Brooks and Yearwood as they meet fans and local music teachers, as well as participate in a Q&A session with Great American Country host Suzanne Alexander.
“CMA Music Festival directly benefits music education across the country through the work of the CMA Foundation,” said Trisha, who also is host of Food Network’s Trisha’s Southern Kitchen. “It is all thanks to the incredible fans and our fellow artists who come out in droves to celebrate Country Music. Thanks to them, and great supporters like HGTV, kids have access to music. It’s definitely moments like this that make CMA Fest so special.”
The HGTV Lodge returns to the 2017 CMA Music Festival with Country Music’s hottest stars taking the stage in the network’s unique venue. From Thursday, June 8 – Sunday, June 11, in Nashville, the 3,500-square-foot HGTV Lodge will offer Festival-goers the Ultimate Country Music Fan Experience™, including live musical performances by popular artists, as well as special appearances by HGTV stars Jonathan and Drew Scott (Property Brothers), Mina Starsiak and Karen E Laine (Good Bones) and Dave and Kortney Wilson (Masters of Flip).
