New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The 47th annual CMA Fest kicked off yesterday, with more than 100 performances on 11 stages throughout downtown Nashville. Fans packed the festival for hours upon hours of live music and one-of-a-kind fan experiences, from CMA reigning New Artist of the Year Jon Pardi kicking off the Chevy Riverfront Stage, to Dierks Bentley appearing and performing on the CMA Close Up Stage for the Artist of the Day session at Xfinity Fair Fair X, to Jason Aldean closing out the nightly concert at Nissan Stadium.

CMA Fest is the longest-running Country Music festival in the world with proceeds going directly to helping enrich and sustain music education programs across the country through CMA's nonprofit arm, the CMA Foundation, thanks to every artist at the festival donating their time.

A limited number of four-day tickets for the nightly concerts at Nissan Stadium, which also includes four-day access to Xfinity Fan Fair X, are still available at CMAfest.com/tickets or through the CMA Box Office at 1-800-CMA-FEST.
