Last night the country music family got together to heal through music. Yes, they were there for the CMT Artists of the Year awards…but it was way bigger than that this year. “Music can be so powful…and we have never needed it more than we do right now. Music moves us, music brings us together and tonight we hope music can be a part of the healing.”
Here’s the emotional start of the night with Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line and Christ Stapleton
One of my absolute favourite moments last night was Andra Day coming together with Little Big Town to sign her smash hit “Rise Up” I get chills every single time I listen to this song (which is almost every day) and it was no different last night
Keith and Luke weren’t just part of the opening, they both slayed their performances too!
And of course, there was a perfect tribute to the late Tom Petty
I’m actually surprised they didn’t get Eric Church to do his new song that he wrote after the tragedy in Las Vegas….if you didn’t see him break down while talking about it at the Opry click here
