I just received my copy of the CMA E-newsletter and bam! There was Dierks' picture at the top! He was just added to the list of performers for the June 11-14, 2009 event. He must be performing on Thursday night, since his regular tour schedule takes him to Boston, Hartford and Gilford (NH) on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
I wasn't planning to attend the Thursday - Sunday Music Fest, but what I really want is a secure spot for the annual Last Call Ball! According to "turtles307" on the dierks.com message board: "Talked to him at a WSIX Radio event in Nashville on Thursday. Said the Last Call Ball would be at LUNCH time on the Wednesday before the CMA Fest." I sure hope they officially announce it soon so we can start planning!
