Luke Bryan and The Band Perry’s Kimberly Perry will co-host CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock, which will air on Sept. 17 at 8 p.m. ET.

The upcoming CMA Music Festival in Nashville is known for its high-energy performances and rabid, dedicated country fans. So the Country Music Association tapped two of country’s most energetic personalities, both onstage and off, to co-host a special highlighting the festival: Luke and Kimberly.

The special will be filmed in Nashville from June 7 to June 10, during the annual CMA Music Festival, where an anticipated 65,000 fans will converge to enjoy 200 hours of live music during the four-day event.

“As far as CMA Fest and the first time we get to host, I get excited,” Luke tells CountryWeekly.com. “It’s going to be fun being up there in front of 50,000 or 60,000 fans and getting them up and getting them going. I feel honored that the CMA asked me to do this. I’m going to do my best and try to make the night even more special for the fans.”

Kimberly Perry agrees. “CMA Music Fest is special to The Band Perry because we love spending time with our fans,” she says via a release.
