Dierks Bentley, Elle King and Lainey Wilson will co-host an upcoming “CMA Fest” television special.
The three-hour primetime concert special, which is set to film in Nashville during CMA Fest’s milestone 50th anniversary later this week, will be broadcast on ABC on July 19 at 8/7c.
“I could not be more excited to welcome Dierks, Elle and Lainey as our ‘CMA Fest’ hosts this year,” says Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “As fans experienced last year, the energy Dierks and Elle bring to the stage is palpable and will only be amplified with the addition of Lainey this year.”
She continued. “Each of these artists have a deep passion for CMA Fest and the Country Music fans from around the globe who travel to Nashville for the event. We are thrilled to have all three of them together to help us celebrate 50 years!”
Performances during the “CMA Fest” television special will be revealed in the coming weeks, CMA said on Monday.
CMA Fest is a production of the Country Music Association. Robert Deaton is the Executive Producer and Writer, and Alan Carter is the Director. 2023 marks the 20th consecutive year CMA has produced a summer concert TV special.
