Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton + More Featured in ‘CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock’ Previews
Sunday night is 'Country's Night to Rock' on ABC as the network recaps five crazy days in Nashville during its three-hour CMA Music Festival broadcast. The video previews below show country's biggest names unloading their biggest hits in front of tens of thousands of fans at LP Field in Nashville. Surprise appearances seem to be the norm instead of the exception.
Miranda Lambert's performance promises to be a highlight as the explosive blonde singer barely contains her emotions during a wild rendition of 'Gunpowder and Lead.' Fans who've never had a chance to see Lambert live will no doubt put her on the short list for 2011 or early 2012. Pistol Annies also make an appearance, bringing the hot new trio more exposure than they've known thus far.
Blake Shelton also brings out a guest star in Trace Adkins during 'Hillbilly Bone,' as does the Zac Brown Band during 'Colder Weather' and 'As She's Walking Away.' Amos Lee and Alan Jackson take the stage respectively during these songs. Additionally, Scotty McCreery joins Josh Turner to help him sing -- you guessed it -- "Baby lock the doors and turn the lights down low."
The CMA Music Festival highlight show begins at 8PM on ABC. Taste of Country will be following the show closely on Sunday night, so be sure to check back Monday morning for highlights you may have missed.
