The day after Lightning in a Bottle made the announcement, the Country Music Association canceled the CMA Fest in Nashville.
“We know fans near and far have been hoping that the festival can safely return this summer and while we are encouraged to see a more widely available COVID-19 vaccine, we still face a number of challenges that keep us from bringing fans around the world the CMA Fest experience they’ve come to expect,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA CEO. “But rest assured, we’ve already started planning the biggest country music celebration next summer. Mark your calendars for the CMA Fest June 9-12, 2022!”
