For those country music fans who were unable to make it out to Nashville in June to see the annual CMA Country Music Festival, ABC is bringing the music and action right into everyone’s home.

With a turn out of over 56,000 fans attending each of the four days of the festival, the CMA Country Music Festival had its biggest turnout ever this past year. However, for those fans unable to make it ABC is continuing its tradition of broadcasting the Festival for a fifth year tonight.

During the special airing tonight ABC will combine the four days into three hours.  Performances will include both veteran and new country superstars including Sugarland, Taylor Swift, Reba McIntire, Trace Adkins, Zac Brown Band, Brooks and Dunn and many others. Fans of Wynonna Judds will be excited to see her performing with the Judds for the first time in six years

Not only will fans get to see performances during the festival but cameras will take fans backstage to view concert extras, including Brad Paisley in his tour bus before he goes out to greet his fans. Kellie Pickler allows cameras to watch her shopping with fans as well as trying Kellie Pickler ice cream at Mike’s ice cream.

Among the stars being interviewed will include the recently disbanded Brooks and Dunn while the duo will continue to perform for the next year and will release a greatest hits album it’s exciting to get as much Brooks and Dunn as possible before they’re done for good.

The CMA Country Music Festival will air on ABC at 8/7 central for three hours.
