ABC is getting ready to do it again. Like last year, they are giving us Country’s Night to Rock. CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock, will be telecast on Sept. 1, 2010, on ABC. The 3-hour show will be on from 8-11 p.m. Tim McGraw will serve as the host of this year’s celebration.
Artists you will see on the show include Jason Aldean, Billy Currington, Alan Jackson, Kid Rock, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, Justin Moore, Brad Paisley, Kellie Pickler, Rascall Flatts, Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton, Trace Adkins, Josh Turner, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Zac Brown Band. The performances were all filmed in June during CMA Music Fest in Nashville.
Viewers will also enjoy two collaborative performances filmed at Fuel Bar & Nightclub in Downtown Nashville in front of a jam-packed crowd of Festival attendees. First, Dierks Bentley and Jamey Johnson join Lambert to sing “Bad Angel,” a track from Bentley’s current CD, “Up on the Ridge.” Later, Uncle Kracker and Kid Rock perform “Good to Be Me,” featured on Uncle Kracker’s recently released CD, “Happy Hour: The South River Road Sessions.”
Offering an insider’s glimpse at the Festival, Lady Antebellum allowed cameras to follow them for a day at the event. Viewers will see the reigning CMA Vocal Group of the Year perform at their fan club party, interact with Festival attendees during an unplanned appearance in the Fan Fair Exhibit Hall, and more.
