Why Thomas Rhett & Kelsea Ballerini Have 'Bigger Appreciation' for CMA Fest

posted by Dustin Stout - 

Kelsea Ballerini and Thomas Rhett have come full circle at CMA Fest.

The hosts of the 2017 shindig reveal in a new behind-the-scenes clip the best part about taking the helm of the music event of the summer.

“The coolest thing about this is me and Thomas both came to CMA Fest as fans, and we both remember where we sat in this stadium as fans,” Kelsea says. “I think it gives both of us a bigger appreciation for being able to sing our songs that have been on the radio now on that stage for all these people because we were one of those people.”

In addition to Kelsea and TR, Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts, Lady Antebellum and many more take the stage for CMA Fest.

Catch it Wednesday, August 16, at 8 P.M. EST on ABC.
