The Country Music Association revealed the star-studded list of performers viewers can expect to watch during the three-hour, televised CMA Fest concert special later this month. More than two dozen artists and surprise collaborations will be featured in the primetime special, hosted by Jelly Roll and Ashley McBryde.

The list of performers in the upcoming special — who took the main stage at Nissan Stadium earlier this month in Downtown Nashville, Tennessee — include Kelsea Ballerini, Big & Rich, Clint Black, Brothers Osborne, Luke Bryan, Terri Clark, Jordan Davis, Jackson Dean, Billy F Gibbons, HARDY, Jelly Roll, Cody Johnson, Little Big Town, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ashley McBryde, Parker McCollum, Megan Moroney, Jon Pardi, Carly Pearce, Post Malone, Shaboozey, Blake Shelton, Brittney Spencer, The War And Treaty, Thomas Rhett, Keith Urban, Gretchen Wilson, Lainey Wilson and Bailey Zimmerman, per the Country Music Association’s announcement on Tuesday (June 18).

“Stepping onto the stage in front of 50,000 people to host CMA Fest at Nissan Stadium in my hometown of Nashville was indescribable,” Jelly Roll said in a statement. “The magnitude of the moment really hit me, to be across the street from the juvenile detention center I was in and to now be on stage hosting—how do you describe being in the same exact place while being in a place that couldn’t be more different, at the same time.” 

McBryde added that she “felt the electric energy” as soon as she and Jelly Roll took the stage in front of thousands of country fans from all over the world at the 51st CMA Fest. Despite nervousness, she said “it also felt good, because at the root of it all, it’s just me and my pal cutting up, only we’re doing it on national television for CMA Fest.”
