Top 10 Past CMA Performances!

10. Lennon and Maisy- Ho Hey CMA Fest 2013

These small song birds can SING. Covering a song and making it your own is a hard task that they accomplished. Everyone was smiling ear to ear and this version is my most played song on Spotify.

9. Blake Shelton- God Gave Me You CMA Fest 2012

This song and performance couldn’t not make the list. Blake is known for his comedic personality but singing this song made the entire arena sway and sing along.

8. The Band Perry- Done CMA Fest 2013

If you have yet to see these siblings perform, go get a ticket now! Not only did they make the entire crowd jump along but also bringing insane energy and great moves!

7. Hunter Hayes- Wanted CMA Fest 2012

Hunter performed to thousands of lights and fans on a grand piano in the middle of the stadium.

6.  Martina McBride and Kid Rock- Picture CMA Fest 2009

This performance made me beg my friends to go to Nashville with me to the legendary festival. An unlikely collaboration made such an iconic performance.

5. Carrie Underwood- Last Name CMA Fest 2010

Carrie’s fashion is always iconic and so was this performance of Last Name!

4. Luke Bryan- Drunk On You CMA Fest 2012

My first time seeing Luke perform. He started off acoustically and brought it all together and just made the night.

3. Faith Hill and Tim McGraw- Meanwhile Back At Mama’s CMA Fest 2014

The power couple of Country music. Dueting. Together. And being adorable. Can it get any better than this? No, no it can’t.

2. Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert- Something Bad CMA Fest 2014

If you weren’t there last year, you missed out BIG TIME! I was left speechless and still can’t get over this.

1. Taylor Swift and Tim McGraw- Highway Don’t Care/Tim McGraw  2013

How could this not be number one? The country songstress started her career singing about Tim and having him come out surprising us all and then go on to sing their duet “Highway Don’t Care” along with Keith Urban. WHERE ELSE CAN THIS HAPPEN?!
