If you're a fan of country music then the CMA Music Festival will need no introduction and you've probably already factored it in as one of the reasons for your pending relocation to Music City. If, however, the CMA Festival means nothing to you then we should take a few minutes to explain.

Every year since 1972 the month of June sees the CMA (Country Music Association) Festival take place in Nashville and it has grown in leaps and bounds over the years. Now each year you can expect upwards of 400 different celebrities and artists to attend and either do autograph signings, performances or a mixture of both. Over the 4 days of the CMA festival you can expect to see hopeful new acts and the seasoned stars of the country music circuit all competing for your attention.

The CMA Music Festival does a great job of dispelling the myth that country music is some kind of niche market and when you see over 65,000 people on the streets for each of the 4 days of the festival you'll understand this too. Over 250,000 people in total get to enjoy all of the entertainment offered across 7 main stages and there's lots of other activities too like line dancing lessons, the celebrity softball challenge and lots more besides.

Millions of dollars from the proceeds of the CMA Music Festival go towards assisting with music education in schools in Nashville and also helps out some other great causes too. So a small portion of every dollar that you spend on tickets, food or anything else also goes towards helping a good cause.

Even if you're not a fan of country music you'll find that the energy of the CMA Music Festival is infectious and you can't help but enjoy yourself as a result.

Yet, another great reason to consider moving to Nashville folks.
