Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban Lead 2018 CMA Music Festival Lineup
The performers for the 2018 CMA Music Festival have been announced. Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban are among the top country talent who will lead the four-day festival, which takes place in Nashville from June 7-10 in 2018.
Urban and Underwood will be among the most anticipated acts to perform nightly at Nissan Stadium, along with Dierks Bentley, Carly Pearce, Chris Stapleton and more. Highlights will be compiled for a TV special that will air later in the year.
Urban has just released a new single, "Coming Home," from his upcoming Graffiti U album. The song is a duet with pop star Julia Michaels. Underwood has mostly been quiet save for a few TV appearances over the last year, but she recently revealed she is working on new music. Other than her newly announced gig at CMA Fest, the only show currently on her calendar for 2018 is We Fest, which takes place from Aug. 2-4 in Detroit Lakes, Minn.
