Spotify, the world’s leading audio streaming service, hosted its fifth annual Spotify House at CMA Fest from June 8 to 11, 2023, at Ole Red in downtown Nashville.

 Some performers included Sam Hunt, Diplo, Old Dominion, Lady A, Brothers Osborne, Ingrid Andress, Luke Grimes, Mickey Guyton, Hailey Whitters, Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley, and more. 

The event also celebrated Spotify’s Hot Country playlist, which has over 6.5 million followers and features the best new and classic country music. Spotify House attendees could enjoy a photo moment with a giant Hot Country logo and access a curated playlist of all the artists performing at the event.

One of the highlights of Spotify House was the Fresh Finds x The Sims Rooftop Stage, which showcased some of the most promising and innovative emerging artists in country music.
