For those of us in love with Country music, night one of the 2018 CMA Fest did not disappoint.

If you were in Nashville and were hardcore, you had the chance to see performances from Locash, Ashley McBryde, Jordan Davis, Chris Lane and Carly Pearce during the day.

Then take a quick dinner break before heading to Nissan Stadium to see Kane Brown and Lauren Alaina perform their smash “What Ifs”, Dan + Shay perform some stuff from their new album Alone Together, Darius Rucker and Brothers Osbourne rock the house; and Jason Aldean closing out the night!
