CMA Music Festival — Country’s Night to Rock [VIDEOS]
The CMA Music Festival "Country’s Night to Rock" aired Monday night on ABC, and the show lived up to its name -- it really rocked! The festival celebrated the biggest country artists. Luke Bryan and Kimberly Perry of the Band Perry were the hosts and right off the bat, they introduced Carrie Underwood to get the party started.
Right after Carrie, Jason Aldean took over and performed "My Kind of Party." Jason was followed by Rascal Flatts, then Dierks Bentley, East Texan Miranda Lambert and her hubby, Blake Shelton.
Brantley Gilbert had his turn on stage and sang "Country Must Be Country Wide." Luke Bryan performed two of his hits and then Zac Brown Band, Eric Church, Little Big Town... the performances went on and on.
