CMA ends: sales are up, but no Miley performance~

CMA Music Festival hit another all-time high attendance record this year, with a 9.4 percent increase over 2007. The average daily attendance for the four day festival was 52,000.

“Even with gasoline prices around $4 a gallon and weak economic conditions around the country, we saw an increase in our attendance on every level from local and regional participation to those fans that traveled from around the world,” said CMA Chief Executive Officer Tammy Genovese.
“I believe that speaks to the strength of the event, the popularity of our artists, the dedication of our fans, and the entertainment value of the Festival.”

The festival wrapped up Sunday. Many fans were hoping Miley Cyrus would be the surprise guest, as her dad played LP Field. However, his step-daughter Brandi was the only one that came out on stage. Some folks said Miley was spotted backstage.
