Guess Who’s Coming to CMA Fest?

Garth Brooks

Country music superstar Garth Brooks announced last night that he will attend CMA Fest this week in Nashville!

Not only will the current CMA Entertainer of the Year be at the Xfinity Fan Fair X, Brooks will also take the CMA Close Up Stage Saturday, June 9 from 12:15 to 1:00 PM, where he will participate in a Q&A hosted by SiriusXM’s Storme Warren and answer questions from fans in the audience.

It was more than 20 years ago, in 1996, that Brooks made history at Fan Fair with his marathon autograph session, signing for fans for 23 hours straight with no breaks. Brooks made a triumphant return to CMA Fest last summer with a surprise performance, bringing the packed house at Nissan Stadium to a roar with a medley of his classic hits including “Friends in Low Places” and “The Thunder Rolls,” as well as his chart-topping 2017 hit “Ask Me How I Know.” The performance marked Brooks’ first CMA Fest performance since 1998.

Brooks is the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year, holding the all-time record for most Entertainer of the Year wins with six total, including back-to-back wins in 1991 and 1992, 1997 and 1998, and 2016 and 2017. Brooks is a 13-time CMA Awards winner and Country Music Hall of Fame member.
