CMA Fest: CMA Close Up Stage Performers And Interviews Announced!

If you’ve gone to Fan Fair X before, you might be familiar with the Close Up Stage. It’s the biggest stage inside Fan Fair X, located inside Music City Center. There they have interviews and performances with some of the best acts in Country Music. It’s really amazing because a lot of times you can’t see some of the bigger acts at such intimate settings anymore, but they feature at least one “big” act a day!
