Dierks Bentley has joined the performance lineup for the Nightly Concerts at LP Field during 2012 CMA Music Festival. The event that USA Today calls “the crown jewel of Country Music festivals” will again take over downtown Nashville, TN for four days this summer, Thursday-Sunday June 7-10, 2012.
The CMA Music Festival celebrates the unique relationship between country music artists and their fans in the heart of Music City USA. The artists participate for free, and on their behalf, CMA has donated half the net proceeds of the festival to support music education through the Keep the Music Playing program.
To date, more than $6.1 million has been donated to purchase musical instruments and supplies, providing thousands of students in Metro Nashville Public Schools with the resources and opportunities they could not have afforded on their own, and giving many of them a strong reason to remain in school.
Featuring concerts, autograph signings, family activities, and more, CMA Music Festival is an unparalleled celebration of America’s music. In 2011, the event drew a record-setting 65,000 fans from all 50 states and 26 nations and, for the second consecutive year, sold out in advance each night at LP Field for the star-packed nightly concerts.
No word yet on the exact night Dierks will perform, but we'll keep you posted. Traditionally, Dierks also hosts his annual "Last Call Ball" fan club party the Wednesday evening prior to the Thursday festival start, so stay tuned for that announcement as well.
