Tetley Iced Tea Presents Road to CMA Music Festival

Fans of CMA Music Festival, taking place June 5-8 in Downtown Nashville, know the event is just around the bend when the "Road to the CMA Music Festival" launches in their hometown. This program brings talent directly to the people through a concert tour that's guaranteed to build enthusiasm for the Festival.

This year's "Road to CMA Music Festival Presented by Tetley Iced Tea" shows feature a double bill, with Jennifer Hanson opening for Darryl Worley. Presenting sponsor Tetley Iced Tea and secondary sponsor Greased Lightning Cleaning Products will offer samples at each performance, and sponsor Chevy will display one of its vehicles at the venues. Additionally, promotional events are planned, with local radio remotes and giveaways at a grocery retailer during the day of each concert.

"Tetley has been making iced tea for more than 50 years," said Clive Rowlandson, VP, Marketing, Tetley Iced Tea. "We know our product is about more than refreshment, it's about sharing good times with family and friends. That's what this tour is all about too, a great way to kick back and have fun this summer. We think Tetley Iced Tea and Country Music is a perfect partnership."

"I'm very excited about going on the road with Jennifer Hanson. She is such a great talent," exclaimed Worley. "I look forward to new relationships with Tetley Iced Tea and Greased Lightning. This will be a terrific way to lead up to the CMA Music Festival and hopefully this tour will increase the excitement."

"The CMA Music Festival is one of my absolute favorite events of the year," said Hanson. "When I was a little girl, I spent many of my summer vacations in Nashville with my dad, attending the shows and getting autographs. But not everyone gets to come to Nashville and experience Music Festival in Music City. It's great that CMA and Tetley Iced Tea are sponsoring a tour that takes a little slice of the excitement that is Music Festival out on the road."
