The 2013 CMA Fest, held in downtown Nashville, will be the place to be early this summer, as more top-notch artists have been added to the festival lineupTaylor Swift and Brad Paisley are among the newly-added, dazzling list of country stars.

Swift will certainly be a huge crowd pleaser when she takes the stage, as the unbridled success of 'Red' continues to take the music world by storm, and Paisley will stop by the CMA's during his Beat This Summer Tour, amidst performances in 29 cities.

Everyone's excited about the upcoming festivities at the 2013 CMA Fest, including Steve Moore, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “We have an amazing lineup of talent for this year’s Festival," he says in a statement. "I know our fans will be entertained and enthralled to see our annual family reunion of the best and brightest performers in the industry.”

With a lineup including Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, and Kelly Clarkson (just to name a few), the 2013 CMA Fest is becoming one of the most highly anticipated summer events. As the biggest country music festival of the year, it certainly is living up to its reputation with this ever-growing list of country stars.

There will be even more performers announced for the four-day festival as it approaches, and we can't wait to see who is added.
