Florida Georgia Line is just one of the superstar acts you’ll see performing on ABC’s CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock Tuesday night at 8 ET. The three-hour special was shot last month on location in Nashville during the four-day CMA Music Festival. The event attracts fans from around the world because it offers the public a chance to interact with their favorite country stars on top of seeing them perform live.
While taping a segment for the ABC special during CMA Music Festival, FGL’s Tyler Hubbard said, “CMA Fest in Nashville, Tennessee is where all the most passionate and most loyal fans join forces for a whole week, from all over the world. Europe, Canada. We’ve met people from everywhere. The energy here is insane.”
Meeting their fans during CMA Music Festival week gives Florida Georgia Line a chance to really spend time with the people who buy their music and concert tickets.
“It’s cool to hear their stories, how they’ve connected with our music,” says FGl’s Brian Kelley. “How it’s touching them and their friends and how they like Cole Swindell now because of us, or they like so and so. It’s really cool.”
He adds, “Our fans are very loyal. The connection is what country music is all about.”
A lot of those behind-the-scenes moments will be featured on ABC’s CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock special Tuesday night. The show will feature performances and interviews with Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Thomas Rhett, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church and many more country stars. Little Big Town hosts the special for the third year in a row.
