Carrie Underwood’s performance at CMA Fest demonstrated that she is deserving of the CMA Entertainer of the Year award. The country superstar’s flawless vocals brought the house down with renditions of her chart-topping hit “Good Girl” and her latest chart-climbing single “Ghost Story.” Fresh off her legendary run in Las Vegas, Underwood wowed the audience with her flawless vocals and high-energy stage presence. Underwood wore a red rhinestone-encrusted Akira vest and corset, paired with customized Current Mood black cut off shorts, and over-the-knee black and silver Azelea Wang boots, all in keeping with her Denim & Rhinestones theme for her new album.

The Music Event of Summer, which marked the festival’s 49th year, was hosted by Dierks Bentley and Elle King for the first time. “I believe Elle brings a great deal to the table,” Bentley said. “Onstage, she is a hoot and incredibly talented – a wonderful combination of talent and wit. There were many spontaneous moments between the two of us, as well as a great deal of laughter. “I am co-hosting this entire event,” King continued. “Not only do I get to do it with my friend Dierks, but I also get to see all of these amazing performances and be a part of a huge party!” The CMA Fest special aired at 8/7c on ABC Network on Wednesday, August 3, and will be available on Hulu on Thursday (Aug. 4). In addition, CMA Fest will return to Nashville for its 50th anniversary in 2023. The event will take place from June 8 to 11, and tickets are currently on sale.
