If you’re wondering where to find me during CMA Fest, I’ll be at Ascend Amphitheater with Tracy Lawrence and his friends.

The annual festival in Nashville just released their lineups for the nightly shows at Ascend, taking place across the river from the larger shows at Nissan Stadium.

And if you’re not into the massive stadium show, the legendary Tracy Lawrence has got you covered.

Tracy is headlining Ascend Amphitheater on Saturday, June 8, and he’s reuniting with tourmate Riley Green after the two wrap up Riley’s Ain’t My Last Rodeo tour.

Along with Tracy and Riley, the lineup also includes Chris Young, Maddie & Tae, Priscilla Block, RaeLynn, and star of the TV series Nashville, Charles Esten.

Honestly, my favorite thing about the shows at Ascend during CMA Fest is that you get longer sets from the artists than the 3-4 songs they usually play at Nissan Stadium. Not to mention you don’t have to fight the insane crowds and traffic that you do for the big shows.

I usually end up skipping the stadium show and hit up the performances at Ascend during CMA Fest – and with a lineup like this, I know exactly where you’ll find me on Saturday night.

Paint me a damn Birmingham, CMA Fest.
