There are certain events leading up to each and every holiday that you always look forward to in getting you in the spirit. It might be the tree lighting ceremony in your home town to kick off the Christmas season, the family cookout on Memorial Day Weekend to mark summer arriving, or Homecoming to celebrate the beginning of fall.
In Nashville CMA Fest is a city wide holiday. Hundreds of thousands of country music fans flood into Music City from all of the country, scratch that, the world. Each year the Tuesday before CMA Fest Pandora kicks things off with an amazing show at Marathon Music Works. This year’s lineup included country’s newest Aussie Morgan Evans, CMT Breakthrough Video winner Carly Pearce and country superstar Brad Paisley.
