Get ready for a party! The ABC Summer Block Party is back and ready to rock at the CMA Music Festival in Nashville. The party gets started on Friday, June 11, continuing through Saturday, June 12 (11:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., CT). The premiere Country Music festival will be taped for a special, "CMA Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock," airing Wednesday, September 1 (8:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.

This year's Block Party, hosted by Rossi Morreale ("Dating in the Dark") and Brandon Barash ("General Hospital"), is filled with entertainment for the entire family. Located at the CMA Music Festival Family Zone in the Walk of Fame Park (between Fourth and Fifth Avenue on Demonbreun), the party will include daily activities and games such as "Name that ABC Tune" and "Daytime Drama."

In addition to the games, autograph sessions and Q&A sessions will be held with Jillian Harris, Paige Hemmis, and Tracy Huston ("Extreme Makeover: Home Edition"); Bobbie Eakes ("All My Children"); Melissa Archer, Bree Williamson and Kassie De Paiva ("One Life to Live"); and Kelly Monaco, Bradford Anderson, Laura Wright, Steve Burton and Scott Reeves ("General Hospital"). ABC-branded souvenirs will be given away, including T-shirts, totes, journals, electric fans and towels.

There will be plenty of music as well, with scheduled performances on Friday, June 11 by Capital Nashville recording artist Emily West and BNA recording artist Chris Janson, in addition to Port Chuck -- Steve Burton, Brandon Barash, Bradford Anderson and Scott Reeves (Jason Morgan, Johnny Zacchara, Damien Spinelli and Steve Webber on "General Hospital"). On Saturday, June 12 the Divas of Daytime, Kathy Brier (formerly from "One Life to Life"), Kassie DePaiva (Blair Cramer on "One Life to Live") and Bobbie Eakes (Krystal Carey on "All My Children"), will perform and mark their return to the Block Party as a trio.

The three-hour ABC special is a primetime postcard of all the best Festival concert performances and behind-the-scenes stories with Country Music superstars. This is the sixth time ABC will broadcast this special, which invites the whole country to America's biggest Country Music bash, since the original Fan Fair´┐Ż was launched in 1972.

Also, ABC and SOAPnet have donated $50,000 to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee to help with the flood recovery. In partnership with the Office of the Mayor and Davidson County's Office of Emergency Management, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee ensures that one gift can impact the widest range of charitable needs in times of disaster.
