cma fest advice

CMA Fest is such an amazing festival of music that it’s hard to describe it to those who haven’t been there.  So, to get a feel for what it’s is all about, CMchat asked a handful of artists to describe CMA Fest using only four words.  As you will see, some had a hard time counting, but we’ll forgive them.

Tara Thompson just couldn’t keep her excitement for CMA Fest down to four words! We can’t help but love her and her enthusiasm.

“Country music fans from all over, extremely hot, lots of free shows that you get to go and check out, artists everywhere, you get to go meet artists and talk to them, buy their music, and get their autograph….and that’s like 10 things, (laughs).” – Tara Thompson @TaraThompsonTN

I’m a self-proclaimed music nerd from Oklahoma who enjoys all genres and can pretty much sing a snippet of any song you can think of. Being a mom of 2, a Zumba Instructor and a volunteer at my kids’ school keeps me busy but I can never go to too many concerts. Live music is my passion and I love writing about those experiences.


Thanks for the email! We'll get back to you as soon as possible!
