CMA Music Festival Can’t Wait For 2012

01:01 PM Thursday 11/17/11 | |

Organizers for the annual CMA Music Festival are so excited for next year’s event that they’ve already announced the first act on the 2012 lineup – Carrie Underwood.

The singer last performed at the festival in 2010. Since winning “American Idol” in 2005 Underwood has sold more than 13 million albums, co-hosted the CMA Awards for the last four years, and picked up five CMA Awards including three CMA female vocalist of the year awards (2006-2008).

The 2012 CMA Music Festival, which began in 1972 as Fan Fair, is set for June 7-10 in Nashville. The event includes four days of concerts at Riverfront Park and four nights of shows at LP Field.

“Normally we do not announce talent until February, but we wanted to be sure everyone knew that Carrie has already committed to perform at 2012 CMA Music Festival,” CMA chief executive officer Steve Moore said in a statement. “She continues to be one of our most respected artists, and we knew the fans would want to be aware so they could go ahead and make plans to attend our event.”

More artists will be announced in the coming weeks.

Four-day tickets are on sale now. Prices range from $115 for LP Field’s upper level seats to $325 for seating in the gold circle. A limited number of four-day parking passes are also available.

Acts who play CMA Music Festival perform for free, and in turn, CMA donates half the net proceeds to support music education through the Keep The Music Playing program. Over the years, more than $4.7 million has been donated to purchase musical instruments and supplies.

The 2011 festival featured Taylor Swift, Alan Jackson, Sugarland, Rascal Flatts, Zac Brown Band, Sheryl Crow, Little Big Town, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, The Band Perry, Martina McBride, Kelly Clarkson, and Brad Paisley.
