Here’s How to Watch the “CMA Summer Stay-Cay” July 1





With the CMA Festival originally set for June canceled due to the pandemic, the Country Music Association is looking to provide some form of alternative for fans in the meantime with its Livestream event, the “CMA Summer Stay-Cay” July 1.

The lineup of guest features is a list as long as your arm, including performances from Jimmie Allen, Ingrid Andress,
Lee Brice, Brothers Osborne, and Luke Combs just to name a few. It will also include one of a kind events like a “’90s Country Cover Challenge” with Russell Dickerson & Friends featuring Dustin Lynch and Carly Pearce, one last quick chat with Rascal Flatts about their 20 years as a group before they go their separate ways, and more. Plus, Cole Swindell will surprise a Bachelorette Party by performing two of his hit songs, and Ashley McBryde and Lainey Wilson will show you how to make an “Old Fashioned Summer” cocktail creation.

The CMA already announced next year’s dates, June 10-13, 2021, and pass holders were given the choice to hold on to their tickets until next year or get a refund.

This year’s livestream is also providing viewers the opportunity to donate to the CMA Foundation, a national music education nonprofit and the philanthropic arm of the Country Music Association. You can contribute through the “Donate Now” button during the livestream.

Here’s how to watch:

When: Wednesday, July 1 at 5 PM CT. Preshow starts at 4:30 PM CT

Where: Stream it live on the CMA Facebook and YouTube pages.

The CMA will also host a second night, “CMA Best of Fest,” hosted by Country Music superstar Luke Bryan, airs Monday, July 13 at 8/7c on ABC.
