Alan Jackson Will No Longer Perform at CMA Fest 2022

Sad news for Alan Jackson fans: The country star is no longer part of the 2022 CMA Fest lineup.

The CMA announced the news in a press release on Friday (June 3),

including no further details about why Jackson can no longer play the event.

He was previously scheduled to perform as a part of the festival's star-studded nightly concerts at Nashville's

Nissan Stadium alongside Jason Aldean, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Darius Rucker and Kelsea Ballerini, among others.

Brothers Osborne and Old Dominion have now been added to this year's list of headliners, filling Jackson's empty time slot.

The unexpected cancellation comes just days prior to CMA Fest's June 9 kickoff, and three weeks

before Jackson is still scheduled to kick off his 2022 Last Call: One More for the Road Tour.

Although the 16-date trek hasn't formally been advertised as a farewell tour, it will likely be one of the last opportunities to catch Jackson live.
