CMA Music Festival

When: June 5th-18th

Where: Nashville, Tennessee

Why Go: Started in 1972 as a way to entertain the fans who were crashing the CMA's fall radio convention, this summer festival gets its rep from both its performances (featuring all the biggest stars in Nashville) and its autograph booths, where those same stars often spend hours signing merch and cheesing for photos with fans from around the country. In between, head over to the Country Music Hall of Fame to get a first look at the museum's recent expansion.

15 Must-See Acts: Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Blake Shelton, Florida Georgia Line, Darius Rucker, Zac Brown Band, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, the Band Perry, Tim McGraw, Little Big Town, Keith Urban
