Will there be a CMA Fest in 2022?
There is a CMA Fest 2022! If you missed the live show in Nashville in June 2022 (or, let’s be real, just couldn’t afford or snag tickets in time), fret not: You can watch the weekend’s biggest highlights from home.
Who is hosting CMA Fest 2022?
Elle King and Dierks Bentley will host CMA Fest 2022. It’s the first time for each of them to host the show.
“I’m thrilled we get to partner with Dierks and Elle as our hosts this year,” CMA Chief Executive Officer Sarah Trahern said in a statement. “They have such passion for the fans. I know the chemistry and camaraderie they bring to the stage will be felt by the millions of TV viewers around the globe.”
Rob Mills, Walt Disney Television’s Executive Vice President of Unscripted and Alternative Entertainment, added, “We are excited to once again collaborate with our longtime partners at CMA for this summer’s must-see music event, CMA Fest. With Dierks Bentley and Elle King hosting the evening, music fans everywhere can be sure to expect an unforgettable night featuring the biggest names in country music.”
While it’s Bentley and King’s first time hosting an event of this magnitude at all, let alone together, it’s not their first rodeo in terms of collaborating. In 2016, they teamed up for the duet “Different for Girls,” and in May of this year dropped a second collab called “One Shot.”
