Relive CMA Music Fest 2014 During ‘CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock’
The 2014 CMA Music Festival may be behind us, but fans get a chance to relive it — or join in on the fun for the first time — in the annual television airing of ‘CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock.’
Hosted on ABC, ‘CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock’ will show many of the talented country acts that performed during Nashville’s annual festival. The special will air August 5 at 8PM ET.
Dierks Bentley, Jason Aldean, Hunter Hayes, Brad Paisley and the Band Perry will all be seen during the ABC event. Little Big Town will make a cameo as hosts for the show — their second time hosting the recap concert.
CMA Music Fest took place from June 5-8 in downtown Nashville this year. The four-day festival saw some huge country acts, and hundreds of artists lined up to play for fans from all over the country. Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert, Thomas Rhett, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, Zac Brown Band, Rascal Flatts, Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban and Chris Young were just a few who performed. Will Hoge, Holly Williams, Lauren Alaina, Krystal Keith, Trick Pony and Chuck Wicks played free shows, and there were a plethora of fun activities for fans to enjoy, like artist meet and greets.
Truth be told, reliving the festival may be just as fun as actually attending. If you didn’t get a chance to go to this year’s event, tune in to ABC on Aug. 5 and pretend you’re sitting in downtown Nashville listening to your favorite artists.
