Luke Bryan has performed at many big stadiums and arenas, but Nashville’s Nissan Stadium during the CMA Fest is important to 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.”
Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini and Dierks Bentley are among those going to be part of the CMA fest tonight on ABC.
Thomas Rhett and Kelsea Ballerini are hosting the CMA’s again this year and Thomas said he can see an improvement in their hosting skills this year compared to past years.
“Me and Kelsea were watching our intros back from last year and we just were both embarassed at ourselves the entire time, like I was yelling the entire time and her hand was just moving the entire time, and so we get better at it every year, but it’s always kind of been a dream of mine to do TV or just to act in any form or fashion and so it’s been really cool to get out here and hopefully do a good job hosting the CMA Fest and glad they keep asking us back.”
