ABC will kick off two nights of country music programing tonight at 10/9 CT with the hour-long special, In The Spotlight with Robin Roberts: All access Nashville, reports Music Row. The special will give viewers an exclusive look inside the homes and private lives of some of country’s biggest stars including Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Faith Hill, Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina and Sugarland.
During his interview, Keith opened up to Robin about his marriage to Nicole Kidman, being a new father and his struggle for sobriety. Kenny took Robin to his new Nashville home where he talked about love, life and misconceptions.“I learned a long time ago, several years ago, to quit reading what anybody writes,” Kenny said to Robin. “I learned not to think about what other people think, I’m just trying, I’m just doing the best I can do to be myself.”
Robin joined Faith in the recording studio as she finished her first new album in six years; and Scotty in the classroom to discuss how he’s balancing his senior year of high school with his newfound fame. She also spent the day with Lauren, who shared what it’s been like to put out her first album while learning to drive.
During the special, Robin will also go along with Sugarland as they return to Indiana for the first time since the deadly stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair. It will be the first time the duo has spoken about the tragedy in a televised interview.
ABC will continue its country music programming tomorrow night when it airs the 45th Annual CMA Awards live from Nashville at 8/7 CT.
