CMA officially announced “CMA Fest,” The Music Event of Summer, will air Wednesday, August 16 (8:00-11:00 PM/ET) on the ABC television network. Thomas Rhett and Kelsea Ballerini will host the three-hour special that brings Country Music’s Ultimate Fan Experience to a national television audience. “CMA Fest” is executive-produced by Robert Deaton.
This year marks a new identity of the primetime special from “CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock” to spotlight the special as the music event of summer, rebranded to the name the fans already refer to the Festival, “CMA Fest.”
Filmed during the 2017 CMA Music Festival in Nashville, the special features country music stars as they hit the stage during the four-day celebration.
