CMA Music Festival Sees Fewest Medical Calls In Years

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – For the first time in years, the Vanderbilt LifeFlight Event Medicine team had fewer medical calls at the CMA Music Festival.

Vanderbilt treated 436 people and only transported seven people to the hospital from Thursday through Sunday.

They said the most common injuries was blisters.

"A lot of them had blisters and repeat blisters. We also had sports medicine that actually helped us a lot with taping people's feet so that it could protect them as they were walking around the CMA but we had a lot of that," said Lisa Henley with Vanderbilt LifeFlight.

Other ailments included falls, overconsumption of alcohol and some heat related illnesses.

Officials attributed the low numbers to good weather and planning.
