Dierks Bentley and Elle King make their hosting debuts for this year's "CMA Fest" special. Bentley previously teased that "the energy is going to be crazy" in the show.
"You really can count your career based on how many years you've had a chance to be part of CMA Fest," Bentley said. "I remember my first time playing the main stage, you went on at noon and you worked your way up to one of the later slots and eventually got to headline one of the nights. So it's a really big deal for us as artists, and obviously for fans too."
