The CMA has rebranded its CMA Music Fest TV special as CMA Fest, The Music Event of Summer, and will air the special Wednesday, Aug. 16 (8:00-11:00 PM/ET) on ABC. Thomas Rhett and Kelsea Ballerini will host the three-hour show that brings Country Music’s Ultimate Fan Experience to a national audience. The special is executive-produced by Robert Deaton.

Formerly known as “CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock,” the special first aired in 2004. Filmed during CMA Music Festival June 8-11 in Nashville, this year’s special features a bevy of stars as they hit the stage during the four-day, mega-music celebration.

A limited number of tickets for the nightly concerts at Nissan Stadium are still available at CMAfest.com or through the CMA Box Office at 1-800-CMA-FEST.
