A lot of stars taking the stage tonight!
Luke Bryan is one of many superstars performing during tonight’s CMA Fest special airing on ABC at 8 p.m. ET. Luke has performed at several stadiums around the country, but taking the stage at Nissan Stadium in Nashville during the city’s annual CMA Fest is a huge deal for him. Luke said, “I mean, this is like a big award show-type crowd that’ll be watching this thing, and, yeah, it’s very important. You don’t want to go out and lay an egg. You want to go put a great show on cause the fans that are in the room, they’re gonna go watch it again, and another thing, it’s gonna make people that may not have been to this festival, they’re gonna want to come be a part of that. I mean, I remember six, seven years ago we had the lower level full, and then through the years, now it’s full from top to bottom, and I remember playing it, so it’s been fun watching CMA Music Fest grow to where it’s sold out every night, and that’s because we put a cool thing to watch on TV together for the fans.”
Luke is in good company and shares the lineup with Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne, Kane Brown, Luke Combs, Dan + Shay, Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Dustin Lynch, Midland, Old Dominion, Jake Owen, Jon Pardi, Carly Pearce, Thomas Rhett, Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton, Chris Stapleton, Cole Swindell, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, and Brett Young. Special guest collaborations include Lauren Alaina joining Kane Brown, Julia Michaels joining Keith Urban, Morgan Wallen joining Florida Georgia Line, and Dwight Yoakam joining Dierks Bentley.
