cma fest 2016

Two of Country Music’s hottest male vocalists will team up to host the summer’s hottest television music event when ABC airs “CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock” on Wednesday, Aug. 3rd (8:00-11:00 PM/ET). Brett Eldredge and Thomas Rhett will host the three-hour special that brings Country Music’s most storied Festival to a national television audience.

The announcement of Eldredge and Thomas Rhett as hosts was made this morning on “Good Morning America.”

“I’ve played my heart out on every size stage at CMA Fest, from the crowds of 20 to the big stadium, because I love the energy of the Festival and the Country Music fans so much,” said Eldredge. “And now I get to host the whole thing with one of my best pals. You can’t beat that!”

“As a fan, CMA Music Fest was always the biggest event of the year for me. Some of my favorite memories are me and my buddies sitting in the nosebleeds watching our heroes play,” added Thomas Rhett. “It’s surreal and a huge honor to be hosting and performing on this stage.”

Filmed during CMA Music Festival June 9-12, the special features many of today’s most exciting Country Music stars as they hit the stage during the four-day celebration of America’s music. The annual event is unlike any other, with meet-and-greets in Fan Fair X, live music on 11 stages, more than 500 artists and celebrities, and a guest list of 87,000 avid singing-and-dancing-till-dawn fans.
