CMA Music Festival Expected To Bring Parking Problems

CREATED May 30, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Downtown Nashville will grow by thousands as the annual CMA Music Festival is set to get underway, making it a challenge to find parking for a lot of attendees.

Many lot owners, who normally only open for Titans' games, have taken advantage of the busy weekend.

One lot attendant said with less parking because of the new Sounds stadium, First Tennessee Park, more people will need parking.

Some have started advertising on Facebook, like Corey Hold at the corner of South 4th Street and Russell.

"I have people calling me already and they want to come by when they come in town and park here. I told them [the fee is] $20 plus I have water and bathrooms for you too," he said.

If you do park downtown in one of the paid lots, always pay at a machine and if someone is taking cash, make sure they have an ID.
