The three-hour special, filmed in Nashville during the festival, airs Aug. 3 on ABC
Country music fans, will you accept this rose?
Musicians Thomas Rhett and Brett Eldredge are offering up both in this exclusive sneak peek for ABC’s CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock. The promo will air during Monday’s episode of The Bachelorette.
“Bachelor Nation, will you accept this rose and join me for the CMA Music Festival?” Rhett asks before cohost Eldredge, 30, steps in to add, “Or accept my rose, and I promise you a show you’ll never forget.” “Are you kidding me?!” Rhett, 26, replies in mock outrage.
The three-hour special certainly packs a punch. Featuring performances by Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Rascal Flatts, Rhett, Blake Shelton, Chris Stapleton, Cole Swindell, Steven Tyler, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban, the show will also highlight duets and collaborations between Bentley and Elle King with “Different for Girls,” a guitar duel between Bryan and Urban (guess who won?), Cam burning down the house with Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town joined by Pharrell Williams on “Miracle.”

CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock will be hosted for the first time by friends (and former tourmates) Rhett and Eldredge.
“Our personalities are so in line with each other,” Rhett previously told PEOPLE. “We just have a good time together on and off stage.”
“We’ve both risen up in our careers at the same time,” added Eldredge. “We knew each other at the very start when we had nothing, and that’s how you grow a bond.”
Filmed at Nissan Stadium in Nashville during the CMA Music Festival June 9-12, the special will air Wednesday, Aug. 3 from 8-11 p.m. EST on ABC.
