Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton and more of the top artists in country music hit the stage on Day 2 of the 2018 CMA Music Festival in Nashville on Friday (June 8), as part of a star-studded lineup that ran all day and into the night.
Shelton and Underwood were part of the lineup at Nissan Stadium on Friday night, headlining massive shows that draw country fans from all over the country every year for the biggest event in country music.
Tyler Farr, Cam, Drake White, Eric Paslay and more were among the acts that performed daytime sets at the various stages that dot downtown Nashville for 2018 CMA Fest, including the Riverfront Stage and the Breakout Stage, which features sets from some of country music’s fastest-rising artists. Old Dominion, Charley Pride, Lee Brice, Jake Owen, Brett Young, Luke Combs and more also graced the nighttime shows at Nissan Stadium Friday night.
Since his debut at Walmart, Ramsey has racked up quite the performance resume, including slots at Coachella, Stagecoach and the Grand Ole Opry. He may be only 11 years old, but he has a refreshingly mature outlook on his sudden fame. “Twenty-eight days ago I was yodeling inside my local Walmart to 11 people. This past weekend I performed in front of 100,000 people at Stagecoach,” he tweeted at the end of April. “It’s amazing what can happen in just a month.”
The song that started it all. Went and recorded a special version for y’all. Hope you liked it – Mason Ramsey
