NASHVILLE -- Three hours. Thirty songs. A whole lot of country music goodness! "CMA Fest" has announced who you'll hear perform during the music event of the summer.

Among the stars performing: Kelsea Ballerini, Big & Rich, Clint Black, Brothers Osbourne, Luke Bryan, Terri Clark, Jordan Davis, Jackson Dean, Billy F. Gibbons, HARDY, Little Big Town, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Parker McCollum, Megan Moroney, Jon Pardi, Carly Pearce, Post Malone, Blake Shelton, Brittney Spencer, The War and Treaty, Thomas Rhett, Keith Urban, Lainey WIlson and Bailey Zimmerman.

But wait, there's more!

Jelly Roll and Ashley McBryde are your hosts for "CMA Fest." They'll also be performing. Jelly Roll will sing "Halfway to Hell" with Keith Urban and "Save Me" with Lainey Wilson.

"If me and Jelly are at the same place we are gonna get up and do 'Save Me' no matter what. Sometimes we'll literally fly from one side of the country to the other just to get up on stage with each other. He's my brother," Wilson told On The Red Carpet.

McBryde will sing her hit, "The Devil I Know" and also perform "Redneck Woman" with Gretchen Wilson. The song is turning 20 and is still just as popular today. Wilson reflected on that time she and singer/songwriter John Rich sat down to write the song.

"I just don't think that John and I, either one, had any idea that the song was going to reach so many women and that so many women all over the place kind of felt the same way that I did," Wilson said.

Cody Johnson, Shaboozey, Jelly Roll and so many more will perform on ABC's "CMA Fest" special, airing June 25.

"All I've been thinking about is getting on that stage and getting my performance," Cody Johnson told On The Red Carpet.

And viewers will hear Johnson sing his latest hit, "That's Texas."

Shaboozey will perform "A Bar Song (Tipsy)." The song has been blowing up the charts and the singer says it's always a party when he performs it live.

"You know I always say my favorite shows with this song are... the ones where people aren't even looking at me. They're just having a good time with each other," Shaboozey said.
