    For the last 14 years, the CMA Awards have consistently been one of my favorite projects to be a part of. I can only think of one show (the Grammys) that brings together the amount of talent and diversity that this one does. Each year brings it’s own set of interesting performances and results, and this year was no different. So, let’s get right to it!

            Once again it was time for another CMA Music Festival.  As Mike Arnold mentioned in his book, the CMA Fest is the best music festival Concert Blast has ever covered.

                The CMA Festival of 2009 was one of the largest crowds that Nashville, TN has seen in quite a while.  Every year country music fans come in from all over the country, and the world, to enjoy several days of music and parties from their favorite country music artists.  During this year’s events, most of the concerts were free.  The weather was nice (with the exception of the one storm at the stadium on opening night).  Below are several pics from the week of the CMA Fest 2009.  ENJOY!!!

                  CMA Festival 2009 Concert Reviews Recorded at Chuck Wicks Fan Club Party (PODCAST 160)

                    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.
