Miranda Lambert with Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts and more performing at CMA Music Fest

The CMA Music Festival is easily one of the best nights for fans to see their favorite country-music performers hit the stage, and a few more acts have been confirmed from ABC today. One of those additions is the current CMA Female Vocalist of the Year Miranda Lambert, who is set to perform a duet with Carrie Underwood for the “CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock.”
 
The three-hour special airs TUESDAY, AUGUST 5 (8:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network and is hosted for the second year by reigning CMA Vocal Group of the Year Little Big Town.
 
Filmed during the sold-out CMA Music Festival in June, which is a four-day party celebrating America’s music, the special also features stadium concert performances by Rascal Flatts, Thomas Rhett, and Keith Urban, and a Late Night Jam at a Nashville club with Cole Swindell.
 
Previously announced performers included Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Hunter Hayes, Brad Paisley, and The Band Perry.
 
The special first aired in 2004. This is the 10th time ABC will broadcast the special – which invites the whole country to America’s largest Country Music celebration. The annual special will air on ABC through 2021, ABC began airing the annual program in 2005.
