‘CMA Best of Fest’ TV Special: Here’s the Full List of Performances
With CMA Fest canceled for the year due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, the Country Music Association and ABC have put together a television special featuring the best performances and big moments from festivals past. Sets from Carrie Underwood, Sam Hunt, Brooks & Dunn and many more will be spotlighted during CMA Best of Fest, which airs Monday (July 13).
Luke Bryan will host the CMA Best of Fest TV special, which will share more than two dozen performances from past CMA Fests, from 2007 through 2019. The show will also include a brand-new performance from Bryan and fellow country star Darius Rucker, of a song called "Small Town."
CMA Best of Fest will begin at 8PM ET on ABC. Readers can find a full setlist for the three-hour event below.
CMA Fest, the world's longest-running country music festival, has taken place in Nashville annually since 1972; previously, it was known as Fan Fair. Its cancellation due to COVID-19 marks the first time ever that the event has been canceled.
