“What should I wear to the Country Music Association Festival in Nashville, June 5 to 8 evenings. Will be traveling from Los Angeles. Don’t want to pack too heavily. “ We recently received this message from a friend and had a blast looking into the CMA Music Festival. The Country Music Association Music Festival was created in 1972 to bring passionate Country Music fans together with Country Music’s new artists, superstars, legends, and more. This festival is your chance to discover music, and make a connection with stars and fellow fans! CMA is even donating the proceeds from the Festival to support music education in Metro Nashville Public Schools and other programs through the CMA Foundation’s, Keep the Music Playing.

Dear Andrea, Wow what a fab trip. I went on the site to do some research, CMA Music Festival. I want to go too! We checked Weather.com for the event and it will be warm. Average high 86, average low 65 – and that is the middle of the night. If you don’t want to pack too heavily, we always suggest packing in a color scheme. It saves space on shoes and bags, while everything mixes and matches. For this trip, we chose white, tan, brown, and went shopping at Ralph Lauren to pick some of our favorites. While not wanting to go too country, we do like a little twang in our fashion for Nashville.
