A growing number of festivals, events and tours have been impacted by the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, but -- so far, at least -- CMA Fest 2020 will go on. The Country Music Association tweeted an update to concerned fans on Wednesday (March 11), just after news broke that the 2020 RodeoHouston was ending early as a result of concerns regarding the virus.
"CMA is first and foremost committed to the health and safety of our fans, artists and community," they wrote, explaining that they were continuing to closely monitor the latest updates from health organizations and local and national authorities regarding the status of the outbreak.
"As of today, CMA Fest will proceed as scheduled June 4-7 in Nashville," the CMA continued. "We are taking appropriate steps to ensure festival grounds will be safe and comfortable for all attendees, including enhanced sanitation protocols and hygiene standards."
