A variety of burgeoning and independent country artists will be hitting the Fresh Finds Rooftop at Spotify House during this year’s CMA Fest (Jun. 9-12).
The Fresh Finds Rooftop at Spotify House will highlight artists included in Spotify’s Fresh Finds Country playlist that’s available via the popular streaming platform. Artists included in the Fresh Finds Country playlist will perform all four days of CMA Fest 2022 at Ole Red in Downtown Nashville.
Among the artists appearing at the Fresh Finds Rooftop are Abby Anderson, Dylan Marlowe, Erin Kinsey, Halle Kearns, Lauren Weintraub, Peytan Porter, Sophia Scott, Taylor Edwards, and more (see the full lineup below). This year is the first year that Spotify has introduced the Fresh Finds Rooftop.
Alana Springsteen reacted to Spotify’s plans to feature artists included in the streaming platform’s Fresh Finds Country playlist at CMA Fest, telling Country Now, “Spotify has changed my life over the past year and a half. Seeing fans discover the songs from History of Breaking Up (Part One) on playlists like Hot Country, Fresh Finds, New Music Friday, New Boots and Wild Country then sing all the words back to me on stages from coast to coast is insane.”
“Spotify House is one of my favorite parts of CMA Fest and I’ve missed it the past few years. Being face to face with Country music fans on the Fresh Finds Rooftop Stage at Ole Red and maybe testing out some new songs is going to be really special. I can’t wait,” she added.
In addition to the Fresh Finds Rooftop at Spotify House, Nashville’s veteran country artists will also be performing at Ole Red during the festival. Included in the line-up are Adam Doleac, Ashley McBryde, Brantley Gilbert, BRELAND, Callista Clark, Darius Rucker, Dylan Scott, Hailey Whitters, Kameron Marlowe, Lainey Wilson, Mitchell Tenpenny, and others.
There will be surprise performances at Spotify House at Ole Red during CMA Fest 2022 as well.
“So much has happened in Nashville since the last CMA Fest, and this includes the rise of some incredible talent and trends within country music,” Mary Catherine Kinney, Strategic Music Partnerships Lead at Spotify said of this year’s event. “When we were building the lineup for our Spotify House at Ole Red this year, we knew we wanted to curate a group of artists that reflect the trends of our listeners.”
“The genre is growing, and fans will be able to experience the full scope of the genre under our roof. Between our initial lineup announcement and a few of the surprise guests we have to come, this is truly a set list built by the listeners, and we can’t wait to experience it all in person.”
The Fresh Finds Rooftop at Spotify House will be a first-come, first-serve event for fans. The performances will take place June 9-12 and the exact set times will be released soon. See the full lineup below.
