Concert Blast was once again accepted as media to cover the CMA Festival for the third straight year. With the unfortunate circumstance of having Bonnaroo on the same weekend and Brian Hasbrook being called to work in New York during the same week we were stretched. Last year we had four podcasts of the CMA Festival, but this year we were trying to be everywhere at once, so there’s only one podcast dedicated to the CMA Fest. On Sunday June 14th, Concert Blast accepted an invitation to the Chuck Wicks Fan Club Party. While Mike, Brian, and Tom were together once again, they decided to put together a podcast discussing the CMA Festival Stadium shows they attended as well as recorded a portion of the Chuck Wicks Fan Club Party.
This year, Tom attended every night of the CMA Stadium shows. Tom discusses the opening night where they had to take shelter at the Stadium due to the storms coming through Nashville. The Friday night show had special guest Kid Rock. Saturday night show had a special reunion appearance of The Judds during Wynonna’s set. Sunday night was full of today’s top Country stars including Kenny Chesney and Taylor Swift.
