Dustin Lynch, Lauren Alaina and Luke Combs Make HGTV Lodge The Place to Be During CMA Fest


There are many, many locations to see your favorite country music stars during CMA Music Fest. But for us, the HGTV Lodge is the place to be. Constructed only for CMA Fest, you won’t see it any other time, the cozy barn in the middle of downtown Nashville helps fans get out of the heat and enjoy some great country music.

Boasting a lineup that rivals Riverfront stage and even Nissan stadium, the HGTV booked country’s hottest acts, including Luke Combs, Trisha Yearwood, Kip Moore, Dustin Lynch, Lee Ann Womack, Lauren Alaina, Ashley McBryde, LoCash, Michael Ray, Jon Pardi and Lee Brice.

Hosted by Suzanne Alexander, who welcomes fans to the intimate venue, performances are coupled with an on the spot Q&A by the host.

In case you weren’t able to make it to the Lodge this year, there’s always next year. But you can also tune in to CMA Fest, a 3-hour special, hosted by Kelsea Ballerini and Thomas Rhett that will feature an exclusive performance by Midland from inside the Lodge.
