CMT Had A Great Time In Milwaukee Last Summer

So, they are back again this year, much to the delight of A&O's friends at WMIL.

When Don Smiley took over as the head of Summerfest, he identified an increase of national exposure as one of the festival's biggest needs. Country Music Television came to Milwaukee last year to tape three concerts for later airing. The results were so good that CMT decided to come back again this year, with a complete production team from the network's Nashville headquarters: three production semi-trailers, an elaborate stage set-up, 10 cameras, and additional lighting transformed the venerable Harley-Davidson Roadhouse into a top-notch entertainment venue for three nights.
