It was our annunal return to the CMA Music Festival in Nashville, TN. On this first night of the Stadium concerts, Mike Arnold, Tom Thompson, and James Downing were on hand to cover the best event in Country Music. Special guest host Charity Taylor also joined the staff as a helper on this night of fun.
Providing the entertainment on this night were; Zach Brown Band (with very special surprise guests Alan Jackson, Randy Travis, Amos Lee, and others), Brad Paisley (with his special surprise guest Alabama), Jason Aldean (with special surprise guest Kelly Clarkson), Sara Evans, and Easton Corbin.
We had a lot of fun throughout the evening as we met up with Concert Blast and Music fans from all over the world!
The bluegrass group, The Issacs started the evening singing the National Anthem and then performed a couple of songs before the Zack Brown Band kicked off the LP Field Stadium concerts with a lengthy set including several special surprise guests. Easton Corbin and Sara Evans also performed well received sets.
Jason Aldean provided the contagious energy on stage that had everyone in the stadium standing, yelling, singing, and dancing throughout his entire set. The noise level went up a notch higher as he brought out Kelly Clarkson to sing their duet together.
The night’s headliner Brad Paisley performed a set of his hits as well as a new song before performing the song, “Old Alabama” and had the band Alabama join him on stage to not only join him in his song, but also thrilling the crowd with their on hits.
The CMA Music Festival staff always have surprises for those attending and this was a night full of them!
