The CMA Fest ABC Special was filmed in Downtown Nashville at Nissan Stadium during the star-studded, four-day festival, which took place Thursday, June 6 through Sunday, June 9.

To prepare for the upcoming special, Music Mayhem has compiled a list of everything you need to know and how to watch the ABC special.

How And When To Watch?

The CMA Fest Special will air on Tuesday, June 25 at 8/7c on ABC and will be available to watch on-demand on Wednesday, June 26 via Hulu.

Who’s Hosting?

Jelly Roll and Ashley McBryde will co-host the concert event.

“Stepping onto the stage in front of 50,000 people to host CMA Fest at Nissan Stadium in my hometown of Nashville was indescribable,” Jelly Roll shared. “The magnitude of the moment really hit me, to be across the street from the juvenile detention center I was in and to now be on stage hosting—how do you describe being in the same exact place while being in a place that couldn’t be more different, at the same time.”

“When my buddy Jelly Roll and I walked out into this massive crowd and felt the electric energy for the first time, it felt important,” McBryde said. “We were nervous! But it also felt good, because at the root of it all, it’s just me and my pal cutting up, only we’re doing it on national television for CMA Fest.”
