"CMA Fest" airs Wednesday, Aug. 8 at 8/7c on the ABC Television Network and is executive produced by Robert Deaton.

"This year's CMA Fest is our biggest yet, with many artists debuting full festival sets on the Nissan Stadium stage," said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. "We're thrilled once again to broadcast 'CMA Fest' and bring the festival to millions of Country Music fans not only here in the U.S. but all around the world."
