CMA 2019 Fest

CMA Fest

The CMA Fest is a Nashville institution, rooted in the close relationship country music performers develop with their fans. Beginning in 1972 as Fan Fair, the festival draws hundreds of country music artists who perform live and hold autograph sessions to meet, greet and thank their fans.

Nashville Public Television joined the 2019 CMA Fest, interviewing generations of country music stars about the history of country music, Nashville, Ken Burns Country Music and their favorite NPT and PBS shows.
