With Saturday, the third day of the 2017 CMA Festival came another day of great music and wonderful weather.  These four days in June is the most anticipated time of year for downtown Nashville.  With tens of thousands of people on the downtown streets, in the bars, and going in and out of the Music City Center, country music fans are socializing, eating, drinking, and being entertained.  It a marvel just watching it all happen.

On the Chevrolet Riverfront Stage, the fans got to enjoy the talents of Scotty McCreery, Brett Young, Brandy Clark, Cam, and Aaron Watson among others.  The Chevrolet Park Stage was surrounded by all the new Chevrolet’s so the fans can look at the new models while they listen to artists such as Morgan Wallen, Carly Pearce, Balley Bryan, and Maggie Rose.

The fans hanging out in the field behind the Ascend Amphitheater got to enjoy the Budweiser Forever Country Stage and its artists John Berry, Andy Griggs, Doug Supernaw, Mila Mason, and Shane Owens to name a few.  Once the show started at the Nissan Stadium across the river, the Cracker Barrel Country Roads Stage inside the Ascend Amphitheater began the entertainment with RaeLynn, Hunter Hayes, and Dan + Shay.

Inside Nissan Stadium with almost 80,000 wild fans and being filmed for an August TV special entitled The Night Country Rocks, the stage burst with excitement as everyone was “Swingin” with John Anderson.  Maren Morris hit the stage next followed by the amazing superstar Chris Young.  Old Dominion was next and got the crowd pumped up for Lady Antebellum.  Ending the night was Thomas Rhett and Florida Georgia Line.

By the time days three is coming to an end you can see some tiredness in some of the fans eyes but these are country music fans and nothing will keep them away from see their favorite stars preform and catch their second wind for the last day of their amazing time in Music City.
