The special, simply called “CMA Fest,” is set to air this Wednesday, August 16th on ABC– just in time to be your mid-week relaxation break! The three-hour special is co-hosted by Kelsea Ballerini and Thomas Rhett, and will feature countless performances from some of the biggest names in country music.
