NASHVILLE—Calling all Country Music fans! The Country Music Association is set to host a night of the hottest Country Music this summer, bringing together your favorite stars for one epic event. 

The festivities will take place on Wednesday, July 1 at 6 PM ET when chart-topping Country artists 
Jimmie Allen and Lindsay Ell host “CMA Summer Stay-Cay presented by Budweiser Nitro Gold,” a brand new, multi-hour live stream variety event. Fans can tune into CMA’s YouTube channel and Facebook page to catch more than 50 of their favorite Country acts coming together (while safely apart) for unique performances, atypical Q&As, games and much more during this fun and collaborative summertime celebration. Stay tuned as the full lineup will be announced in the coming days on the CMA Fest app and CMASummerStayCay.com.  

The event celebrates the legacy of CMA Fest, the world’s longest-running Country Music festival taking place in Nashville annually since 1972, which was postponed this year due to safety concerns amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The festival will return to downtown Nashville June 10-13, 2021.  

About the Country Music Association   
Founded in 1958, the Country Music Association is the first trade organization formed to promote a type of music. In 1961, CMA created the Country Music Hall of Fame to recognize artists and industry professionals with Country Music’s highest honor. More than 7,700 music industry professionals and companies from around the globe are members of CMA. The organization’s objectives are to serve as an educational and professional resource for the industry and advance the growth of Country Music around the world. This is accomplished through CMA’s core initiatives: the CMA Awards, which annually recognize outstanding achievement in the industry; CMA Fest, which benefits the CMA Foundation and music education and is taped for a television special, “CMA Fest”; and “CMA Country Christmas.” CMA’s television properties are screened internationally in Australia, Canada, Germany, Latin America, Scandinavia and the U.K. Each year CMA brings music worldwide, presenting live performances featuring artists and songwriters through its touring series Introducing Nashville and CMA Songwriters Series. The organization is represented in Australia, Canada, Germany, Scandinavia and the U.K. through its task force groups comprised of industry leaders working to further Country Music in these territories. As a trade association, CMA presents five annual international industry awards to acknowledge the effort of individuals working to develop Country Music in markets across the world.
