Officially, the lineup for CMA Fest is complete. Idol’s Skylar Laine isn’t on the list, but anyone who has attended CMA Music Fest knows there are typically a lot of surprises.
Laine seemed to hint at the possibility when she was quoted in USA Today earlier this month. The article read, “For the immediate future, Skylar’s keeping her fingers crossed for a trip to next month’s CMA Music Festival in Nashville. It’s the traditional introduction point to Nashville for country-singing Idols, and Skylar got to see Lambert perform there a few years ago.”
That was encouraging, but it was the direct quote from Skylar that followed that made me think that something might be in the works. “That’s where I really want to be,” she told USA Today. “I came one year as a fan. Now, maybe, I’ll be there as an artist.”
Of course, this is purely speculation. There is no proof that Skylar will show up. If I had my guess, though, I’d say she will most likely show up on the LP Field stage with Miranda Lambert or Carrie Underwood. I wouldn’t be surprised to see her at the City of Hope
