Here's How To Watch The 2021 CMA Summer Jam

CMA's inaugural Summer Jam special is coming soon to the small screen. The country music event is sure to delight fans as CMA brings together country's biggest stars for a night of music. The Summer Jam is a three-hour special recorded back in July over the course of two nights. The live concert event was first shot in downtown Nashville where over 20 musicians gathered to perform for fans as they overlooked the Tennessee city's skyline from Ascend Amphitheater.

According to Music Mayhem, the Summer Jam is the "first concert broadcast event for CMA in nearly two years" thanks to restrictions placed in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. "I am still grinning ear to ear from these last two nights of incredible live Country Music," said CMA CEO Sarah Trahern after the event took place back in July. "Seeing artists finally return to the stage and the reaction from fans was absolutely electric. Viewers are in for such a treat from familiar superstars and fresh new faces when 'CMA Summer Jam' airs."

So how can viewers tune in to the country jam? Read on for the details.

Country stars reveal their favorite summer songs

In celebration of CMA's first broadcast concert event since the beginning of COVID-19, the Country Music Association is bringing out all the stops to make sure the 2021 CMA Summer Jam is a night to remember.

The CMA Summer Jam is first getting fans amped up by asking some big name celebs all about music. In an Instagram video for CMA, artists like Thomas Rhett, Carrie Underwood, and Jimmie Allen gathered to reveal their favorite summer jam. While most stuck with fellow country singers, Allen surprised fans with his top pick of Will Smith's "Summertime" and Underwood stood in confidence as she revealed her favorite summer tune is her own single. " 'Southbound because it's just kind of all about, you know, being with friends and being on the lake, and we shot that video on a summer day," the "Before He Cheats" singer revealed.

Fans wondering whether they can expect the country stars' summer picks to be performed at the 2021 CMA Summer Jam will have to tune in on Thursday, September 2 at 8/7c on ABC, or stream the event live on Hulu.

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are expected to perform

In another promo video for the 2021 CMA Summer Jam, a few fan favorite country artists admitted which stars they'd love to collaborate with and of course, the number one country artist to be mentioned was Dolly Parton.

Unfortunately for fans, it doesn't seem like the artist (who happened to help grant the COVID-19 vaccine) is expected to perform, perĀ Country Now. However, a few big names will be dropping by the concert event including Brothers Osborne, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Carly Pearce, Thomas Rhett, Carrie Underwood, Luke Combs, Jimmie Allen, and Miranda Lambert.

Also in attendance is Lambert's ex-husband Blake Shelton and his new bride Gwen Stefani. The newlyweds are expected to rock the night with their single "Happy Anywhere." The 2021 CMA Summer Jam recording came shortly after Shelton and Stefani tied the knot in their Oklahoma home, and sparked the start of their "honeymoon tour," where the happy couple is spending their first few months of marriage performing on the road.
