1) Sam Hunt — “Body Like A Backroad"
Sam Hunt is back at it and this time on your TV set! He knows how to electrify an audien= and on the same night that he was rocking the Greek Theater in Los Angeles in person, he delivered a strong televised performance of his hit song “Body Like A Backroad." Check it out! It'll feel like you're actually at the show, that's how good it is.
2) Eric Church — “Chattanooga Lucy"
Eric Church's live shows are known for their high energy, as the recent close to his record-setting Holdin' My Own Tour displayed. That energy definitely translates to the TV screen too. Watch The Chief bring his unparalleled stage presence to last night's airing of CMA Fest 2017 with a stunning rendition of “Chattanooga Lucy."
3) Miranda Lambert — “Highway Vagabond"
We know Miranda Lambert brings the heat live and dazzles her fans with every performance. Good news. It's no different when you're watching her from your living room. Lambert dominated an inspiring rendition of her smash hit “Highway Vagabond" during last night's CMA Fest 2017.
4) Blake Shelton & Trace Adkins — “Hillbilly Bone"
Talk about an insane live performance with some country firepower. People watching CMA Fest 2017 last night were loving it when Shelton started singing the opening to “Hillbilly Bone," but little did they know, Trace Adkins was waiting in the wings to guest star on the song and their viewing experience was about to get a hell of a lot better. The crowd got even louder as Adkins made his way to center stage, which you can see for yourself in the video below!
5) Maren Morris — “I Could Use A Love Song"
Last, but not least, Maren Morris showed her diversity, channeling the opposite end of her energetic spectrum on a soulful performance of “I Could Use A Love Song."
The CMA Fest is a unique event and an experience that truly brings an authentic country concert to your TV screen free of charge.
