HOUSE PLAYLIST

I think my favorite spot at #CMAFest is the #HGTVLodge – it’s a great space that captures both energy and intimacy. Case-and-point, watching @ChrisYoungMusic (Team Sony) bring his #RaisedOnCountry brand to #CMAFest in his first performance of the festival! It was a packed-to-capacity situation and Chris absolutely crushed-it! Watch highlights on our #InstaStory

ON THE KARAOKE MACHINE

Check out new music from @TrishaYearwood (Team Pearl) #EveryGirlInThisTown

FRONT OF THE HOUSE

My first stop on Day 1 of #CMAFest was the #ChevyRiverfrontStage at 10 a.m. to watch @BillyCurrington (Team Universal) deliver a vintage performance that made everyone appreciate what a standout career he has had that has spanned multiple chapters in the lifespan of #countrymusic. Check out highlights on our #instastory

AT THE BAR

For the 2nd year, @Spotify is “programming” the hottest spot in #Nashville #LowerBroadway @OleRedNashville  – couldn’t think of a better place to escape the rain and stay dry while still rockin’ out to some great #countrymusic courtesy of @HunterHayes (Team Warner) @Lauren_Alaina (Team Universal) @MidlandOfficial (Team Big Machine) and surprise guests @LittleBigTown (Team Universal) – check out highlights right now on @MorningHangover #InstaStory which also includes @M10Penny (Team Sony) and @RascaFlatts (Team Big Machine) who made a surprise appearance during the afternoon!

CRUSHIN IT

Got a double-dose of @MorganWallen (Team Big Loud) watching him perform at his special fan-club party presented by @ShinerBeer at #FGLHouse and then at the #HGTVLodge … amazing seeing the response his new #1 hit song #WhiskeyGlasses has gotten from these fans! Watch our #InstaStory and you’ll see what I mean.

BUZZIN

Really digging the new music from @Alanas_Tweets (Team Warehouse West) – check out #Over

SHOT

If you only get to see one performer play #CMAFest at the #ChevyRiverfrontStage – make sure it’s @JimmieAllen (Team Broken Bow) because every fan who watched him perform yesterday saw first-hand how truly special this guy is … Jimmie is a force of nature who personifies entertainment – this guy brings more than his #BestShot and the fans love him for it. Taking the stage right after Jimmie was his label-mate and one of the most talented guitarists in the game @LindsayEll. One thing I’ve noticed about Lindsay over the past year-and-a-half is how she has come into her own as a performer. She has a little swagger now and I think it adds a really interesting dimension to her performances. Check out both Jimmie & Lindsay right now on our #InstaStory 

LAST CALL

Heart-breaking news from the family of @GrangerSmith (Team Broken Bow) – “I have to deliver unthinkable news. We’ve lost our youngest son, River Kelly Smith. Following a tragic accident, and despite doctor’s best efforts, he was unable to be revived. Amber and I made the decision to say our last goodbyes and donate his organs so that other children will be given a second chance at life. Our family is devastated and heartbroken, but we take solace in knowing he is with his Heavenly Father. Riv was special. Everyone that met him knew that immediately. The joy he brought to our lives cannot be expressed and his light will be forever in our hearts. If there are words to say more, I cannot find them in this moment. Love the ones close to you. There has never been a more difficult moment for us than this.”
