10 Amazing Photos From the 2017 CMA Music Festival

The 2017 CMA Music Festival brought four days of wall-to-wall music to Nashville on June 8-11. Free shows, nightly concerts at Nissan Stadium and Ascend Amphitheater and plenty of surprises awaited the fans who were in Music City for the massive annual event.

From Garth Brooks’ surprise appearance at Nissan Stadium on Thursday night (June 8) to Darius Rucker and Karen Fairchild’s unexpected duet on Sunday night (June 11), CMA Fest 2017 was full of memorable moments. In addition to the nightly shows, free concerts took place each day at stages placed around downtown Nashville, and artists hosted fan club events, autograph signings and pop-up shows.

Those who didn’t make it to the 2017 CMA Music Festival — or those who want to re-live it — will be able to catch highlights from the four-day fest on TV later this summer. ABC will air the CMA Fest: The Music Event of the Summer TV special on Aug. 16 at 8PM ET. The three-hour show will feature major moments from this year’s CMA Fest, and Kelsea Ballerini and Thomas Rhett will co-host.

In the meantime, readers can flip through the photo gallery above to see 10 killer pictures from the 2017 CMA Music Festival’s nightly Nissan Stadium shows.
