Nashville is the place to be for country music fans this week and the third night of 2017 CMA Fest kicked things into high gear at Nissan Stadium with a four-hour concert that featured Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Lady Antebellum, Old Dominion, Chris Young, Maren Morris and John Anderson. Saturday night (June 10), proved to be a memorable one for duets, too, as Morris joined Rhett for their latest single, “Craving You,” while Cassadee Pope surprised the crowd during Young’s set for their Grammy-nominated “Think of You.” The evening served as a thank you to country fans as each artist shared their gratitude for those in attendance.
“We love you guys,” Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard told the thousands of country fans at Nissan Stadium during their set. “CMA week has become something super special to BK and I because it’s all about you guys. It’s all about the fans, it’s all about the people who make our dreams come true and allow us to do what we love. Thank you for believing in country music and believing in something that’s a little bit different and a little bit out of the box, for believing in two guys that want to travel the world and play music. We love y’all.”
The duo’s high-energy set had them playing many of their massive hits including “Cruise,” “Anything Goes,” “This Is How We Roll,” “May We All” and “God, Your Mama, And Me.” During their performance FGL got nostalgic, with Brian Kelley recalling that not long ago they were sneaking into Nissan Stadium to watch the country acts on the main stage and now they’re closing out the night.
“If you have a dream and you feel like it’s impossible and it’s too big to ever come true, believe,” Hubbard advised. “Keep chasing your dream, keep doing what you want to do. We’re living proof that everything is possible, I promise you guys that.”
