Last night (6/9) marked night two of CMA Fest as fans gathered to Nissan Stadium in Nashville to see some of their favorite artists perform their biggest hits in one arena. Last night’s performing artists included Trace Adkins, Rascal Flatts, Dustin Lynch, Sam Hunt, Brett Young, Kelsea Ballerini, Eric Church and Blake Shelton.
Trace Adkins opened the show, with Rascal Flatts following not long after his set. The Flatts got the entire crowd on their feet with songs like “Fast Cars and Freedom” and their newest single, “Your’s If You Want It.”
Dustin Lynch and Brett Young were last-minute additions to the show but delivered performances that garnered the crowds’ full attention. Sam Hunt led a full-on stadium sing along to his hit single, “Body Like A Back Road,” in addition to playing hits like “Break Up In A Small Town,” “Take Your Time,” and “House Party.”
Kelsea Ballerini rocked the stage in a sparkling two piece number and decorative jacket that she eventually ditched towards the end of the set. In addition to performing her number one singles “Love Me Like You Mean It,” “Dibs,” and “Peter Pan,” she also performed her newest single “Legends” and a new song titled “I Hate Love Songs.”
The show ended with two groundbreaking performances by two of country’s most loved male artists, Eric Church and Blake Shelton. Eric Church, rocking his signature Ray Ban sunglasses, got the whole crowd rocking to hits like “Smoke A Little Smoke” and “Give Me Back My Hometown.” Arguably the most entertaining act of the night would have to be Blake Shelton, as he continued to crack jokes throughout his entire set. He played his first single to ever hit country radio, “Austin,” as the crowd sang along with him. He also sang his latest hits “A Guy With A Girl” and “Every Time I Hear That Song.” He didn’t do a bad job promoting his latest vodka, Smithworks Vodka, as he continuously sipped from his red solo cup and toasted to the crowd during his set.
Tonight (6/10) the party continues at Nissan Stadium with artists like Maren Morris, Lady Antebellum, Thomas Rhett and Florida Georgia Line taking the stage.
