Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, and More Will Play CMA Summer Jam
Calling all country music fans, CMA Summer Jam back this month. The two-night concert will take place at Music City’s Ascend Amphitheater on July 27 and 28. Nine of Country music’s biggest stars will perform on stage each night including Luke Bryan and Carrie Underwood.
The concert will be filmed for a primetime ABC special airing later this summer. From original performances, to first ever collaborations, this is an event you don’t want to miss.
The first night of performances will feature both Underwood and Bryan. Recently married Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani will also perform. Mickey Guyton, Carly Pearce, Cole Swindell, Lainey Wilson, and Dwight Yoakam, will complete the night one set.
On night two, Jimmie Allen, Gabby Barrett, Dierks Bentley, and Brothers Osborne will take the stage. Luke Combs, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert, Jon Pardi, and Thomas Rhett will also hit the stage the second evening.
What Have the Stars Been Up To?
Recently, Underwood released a new song with the band Needtobreathe. The single, “I Wanna Remember” is a romantic track perfect for the upcoming summer months. There’s a great chance she might perform this one on stage, so keep your ears open. Underwood also won video of the year at the CMA’s this year for her song “Hallelujah” with John Legend.
This will be the first time newlyweds Shelton and Stefani will perform together since their Oklahoma wedding. I’m sure Shelton will also be excited to see his buddy, Luke Bryan, who’s been a very busy man himself.
Bryan is set to premiere My Dirt Road Diary on August 6. The five-part docuseries will take audiences on a journey from the singer’s early life to his rise to country music fame. He has also released a YouTube content series, Rise Before Sunrise. To top it all off, Luke Bryan will treat his fans with a new tour, September 9.
Tickets for the event will be available for purchase this Wednesday, July 14 at 10 a.m. They begin at $70, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the CMA Foundation. The organization is committed to improving and sustaining music programs across the U.S. With this donation, students will also have equitable opportunity to participate in high-quality music education.
