Rising stars will host three hours of highlights from annual country-music festival, airing in August on ABC

Under the new title CMA Fest, the annual CMA Music Festival TV special is set to air August 16th on ABC. Thomas Rhett and Kelsea Ballerini host three hours of highlights from the June country music gathering in Nashville, where artists like Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert and Eric Church entertained thousands of fans over four days.

The Ram Report caught up with Rhett, who hosted the special last year with Brett Eldredge, and his new co-host Ballerini backstage at the CMA Fest’s main stage. Formerly known as CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock, the new CMA Fest airs Wednesday, August 16th, at 8:00 p.m./ET on ABC.
