‘CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock’ Sets 2014 Air Date
The 2014 CMA Music Fest is now a happy memory for the more than 80,000 fans who attended the concerts each day, but now even those who were not lucky enough to attend can join in on the fun.
ABC's 'CMA Country Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock,' will air on Aug. 5, beginning at 8PM ET, and showcase several of the artists who took the stage each day.
Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Hunter Hayes, Brad Paisley and the Band Perry are among the performers who will appear. Little Big Town will also return for the second year to serve as the show's hosts.
The four-day event, held June 5-8 in downtown Nashville, boasted hundreds of artists, including Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert, Hunter Hayes, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts, Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Chris Young and Zac Brown Band. In addition, more than 100 free acts took the stage, including Holly Williams, Lauren Alaina, Krystal Keith, Trick Pony and Chuck Wicks.
As if the nonstop music wasn't enough, the CMA Music Festival also offers fans a chance to meet their favorite artists.
“You can have a conversation during that and find out, hear people say the things that matter, like, ‘This song on this new record helped me through this situation,’” Gilbert says. “That makes it all worth the while for me. I’d take that over a check any day of the week.”
