CMA Fest Returns to ABC with Kelsea Ballerini and Thomas Rhett

If you loved last year’s CMA Fest concert on ABC as much as we did, you will jump for joy at this news. Last year’s Nissan Stadium hosts, Thomas Rhett and Kelsea Ballerini, are back to emcee the show again this year.

The CMA Fest special on ABC gives country music fans highlights of all four nights of ginormous musical acts at Nissan Stadium, all the while getting a sneak peek at what goes on behind-the scenes with a little help from No. 1 artists Rhett and Ballerini. This show is not only the perfect Band-Aid on the wound for those who were unable to attend CMA Fest, but it also gives those in attendance a unique vantage point like no other televised musical event.

CMA Fest will air on ABC on August 8, 2018 at 8:00pm ET/7:00pm CT. Mark those calendars now so you don’t miss out on four nights of musical magic rolled into one!
