The CMA Music Festival, featured live music on 11 stages from four nights of concerts. That was edited down to a three-hour event that aired on ABC.
The night was co-hosted by Thomas Rhett and Kelsea Ballerini. In addition to performances from Blake Shelton, Keith Urban and Rascal Flatts, the awesome performances included:
- Garth Brooks giving up his hits including “Ask Me How I Know,” and “Friends in Low Places” - a great open for the shenanigans
- Lady Antebellum’s rolling through “You Look Good"
- Maren Morris and Thomas Rhett’s delicious "Craving You" duet
- Cole Swindell and Dierks Bentley "toe it up" performance of “Flatliner”
- Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild and Darius Rucker teaming up on “If I Told You"
- Miranda Lambert's INSANE performance of “Highway Vagabond”
- Eric Church's killer rendition of "Chattanooga Lucy"
