This week will mark the 42nd celebration of country music, originally known as Fan Fair, and now called CMA Music Fest, in Nashville. First of all, they should have never changed the name to CMA Music Fest - way to go, Country Music Association - it will always be known as Fan Fair at my house. OK, now that I've gotten that our of the way - our friends at Rolling Stone Country have chosen 30 acts to absolutely positively not miss during this week's festivities. Some of them are old favorites, like Wynonna, and some are newbies who are just now rising on the country music scene, like David Fanning and Frankie Ballard.

If you are one of the thousands of folks from Acadiana who are heading to Nashville this week for country music's biggest celebration, then check out the list of '30 Must See Acts'.
