CMA Music Festival Wraps

The CMA Music Festival wrapped up Sunday night, June 10, with a rocking show featuring Brad Paisley, Gretchen Wilson, Miranda Lambert and more stars.

The four-day festival in downtown Nashville, June 7–10, treated fans to nightly concerts at the city’s LP Field, autograph booths, daily shows at Riverfront Park and children’s activities. Among the highlights from this year’s festival: Reba McEntire’s duet with pop star Kelly Clarkson on Reba’s upcoming single “Because of You,” rock icon Ted Nugent joining friends Montgomery Gentry on stage and Martina McBride’s fiery performance of “A Broken Wing” and other hits as she closed the June 9 stadium show. Final attendance figures have not yet been released, but it is believed that this year’s attendance will surpass the record-setting numbers of 2006.
