Thomas Rhett and his tourmate, Kelsea Ballerini, have been chosen to co-host this year's CMA Music Festival prime time special on ABC. The three-hour CMA Fest 2017 will be taped in downtown Nashville from June 8-11.
Thomas said, "I always look forward to CMA Music Fest. Ever since I was there as a fan sitting in the nosebleeds to hosting this year with Kelsea, it’s always been one of the biggest weeks in Country Music that is all about the fans. I’m pumped.”
Kelsea added, “I’ve grown up going to CMA Fest as a fan and last year getting to perform on the big stage is one of the most epic memories I’ll ever have. And now, being able to host with my current tour mate, Thomas Rhett, is going to be another crazy thing off the bucket list. I can’t wait to test out my hosting skills and perform again this year!”
Of course, both Thomas and Kelsea will also be performing on the main stage at Nissan Stadium during the CMA Music Festival.
The two continue on Thomas' headlining Home Team tour with the second of two shows in Nashville tonight (Friday, April 21st).
