As Music City prepares to shut down for the upcoming instalment of CMA Fest this weekend, the hosts for the 2023 CMA Fest TV Special have been confirmed.

Dierks Bentley and Elle King will reprise their roles helming the showcase, with the duo having presented the 2022 TV Special, while Lainey Wilson is an exciting new addition to the hosting line-up.

The 2023 CMA Fest TV Special will air on ABC on July 19 at 8/7c, just over a month after the event takes place in Nashville, with CMA Fest celebrations already getting underway in preparation for the first day of main-stage performances on June 8.

The much-loved ABC programme will comprise all the highlights from CMA Fest, with performances in store from the likes of Luke Combs, Tim McGraw, HARDY, Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Cody Johnson, Jon Pardi, Carly Pearce and Luke Bryan.

Also set to appear across the four-day summer extravaganza is Dan + Shay, Jordan Davis, Little Big Town, Tyler Hubbard, Keith Urban, Ashley McBryde, Megan Moroney, Tracy Lawrence, Breland, Jo Dee Messina, Lauren Alaina, Ashley Cooke and more.

The viewing details for international fans have not yet been revealed. Those hoping to watch the CMA Fest TV Special in the UK can usually enjoy the show a few months after the US premiere via the BBC, and the same is expected to be true for the 2023 event.
