If the heat of July has you wanting to park yourself in front of the AC and veg out, you’re not alone — and there’s plenty to keep you entertained at home as musicians get ready for their livestream sets this week.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage around in the United States, leading to a slowing of re-openings — and in some cases, renewed shutdowns — musicians are continuing to connect with their fans from a safe distance via livestream performances.
Below, check out the livestreams you can enjoy from your couch this week. We’ll update this list as more events are announced.
July 13: The “CMA Best of Fest” will air at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC. Luke Bryan will host the three-hour live concert event, which will feature 25 memorable televised performances from the last 16 years of “CMA Fest,” which was postponed this year because of the coronavirus pandemic. The special will also include a new performance by Bryan and special guest Darius Rucker.
