The term, “music city,” gets turned up to 11 this week in Nashville, TN for CMA Music Festival and Fan Fair. With most of the area’s “hipsters,” down in Manchester for Bonnaroo, country music takes its rightful throne to the Nashville fortune, which will be bursting at the seams with shows around the city from some of the biggest acts in the genre. Furthermore, these artists give back with a bevy of fan-centric activities during Fan Fair, with autograph signings, acoustic performances, “red carpet” photo area and other summer fun lining the streets.

The PlayStation Truck will be out during the festival [middle of Broadway between 2nd and 3rd Avenues], so keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter for photos!
