CMA Music Fest TV Special to Be Hosted by Luke Bryan and Kimberly Perry

ABC is once again giving viewers a behind-the-scenes look at CMA Music Fest. This year, the network has recruited Luke Bryan and the Band Perry‘s Kimberly Perry to host its three-hour special, “CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock,” which will be filmed this Thursday through Sunday (June 7 – 10) in Nashville.

“We have so much fun playing at CMA Music Festival,” says Luke. “The entire town of Nashville turns into one big party and performing at LP Field becomes one of the best shows we play all year.”

“CMA Music Fest is special to The Band Perry because we love spending time with our fans,” echoes Kimberly. “We are excited to be a part of ABC’s coverage of the four-day event, co-hosting the television special.”

The annual CMA Music Fest is the ultimate country music fan experience, with 30 hours of autograph signings, 200 hours of live music, appearances by 450 artists and celebrities, and activities for the whole family. Last year, the CMA Music Festival drew a record 65,000 fans to Music City, from all 50 states and 26 countries. According to the Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau, those fans spent more than $30 million in the city, making the annual event a huge economy booster for Nashville. It’s also a huge boost for a great cause: the Keep the Music Playing program, which provides instruments and other supplies to public schools. Half of Music Fest’s net proceeds go to the charitable organization.

Tickets for CMA Music Fest are on sale through Ticketmaster or by calling 1-800-CMA-FEST (262-3378). “CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock” will air Sept. 17 at 8:00 PM ET on ABC.
