Nashville has become a must-see international destination because of groundbreaking shows like CMT’s Nashville and concert events like CMA Fest. Everywhere downtown during the 47th annual event in June was packed with fans from all over the world including all 50 states and 36 foreign countries. Concert magic from the 2018 concerts will be showcased during a three-hour concert special airing Wednesday (Aug. 8) with hosts Kelsea Ballerini and Thomas Rhett.
In addition to the performances they both delivered during the 2018 CMA Music Festival in June, Thomas Rhett and Kelsea Ballerini are hosting a TV special featuring performances from the event for the second year in a row. On Aug. 8, CMA Fest 2018 highlights will be broadcast during a special televised event, giving festival attendees, fans who couldn’t make it and the hosts themselves the chance to live out the experience one more time.
