See a Preview for 2017 ‘CMA Fest: The Music Event of the Summer’ TV Special

The 2017 CMA Music Festival is coming to fans’ living rooms this August, and co-hosts Thomas Rhett and Kelsea Ballerini have released a preview of the TV special. Readers can press play above to watch the teaser, which gives viewers a glimpse at CMA Fest: The Music Event of the Summer‘s star-studded lineup.

In the advertisement for the event, Ballerini and Rhett invite a couch-bound couple (and their dog) to join the party. The country stars step out of the couple’s television set and into the living room, much to their surprise, and reveal a CMA Fest TV special lineup that includes Garth Brooks, Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Miranda LambertEric Church, Blake Shelton, Lady Antebellum and many more. Rhett and Ballerini promise a festival-like experience without leaving the house, also teasing several can’t-miss collaborations: Rhett with Maren Morris, Darius Rucker with Karen Fairchild from Little Big Town and Dierks Bentley with Cole Swindell.

The teaser closes as Ballerini waits impatiently for Rhett to deliver a couch-side serenade to the family dog. CMA Fest: The Music Event of the Summer is scheduled to air on ABC on Aug. 16 at 8PM ET.

The 2017 CMA Music Festival brought four days of wall-to-wall music to Nashville on June 8-11. Free shows, nightly concerts at Nissan Stadium and Ascend Amphitheater and plenty of surprises awaited the fans who were in Music City for the massive annual event.
