Hello Country Music fans!
The 2012 CMA Fest continues with the second night at LP Field (June 8). This time the lineup included Ronnie Milsap, Brantley Gilbert, Jake Owen, The Band Perry, Blake Shelton and Carrie Underwood.
So, Best Act Hands Down? I really would like to say Blake, but Carrie Underwood was the best overall performer last night. She sang Good Girl, Blown Away, Jesus Take The Wheel, American Girl, Undo It, Cowboy Casanova and closed big with Before He Cheats. She had people dancing in the aisles.
My very own personal Act To Watch goes this time to the Band Perry. The trio had everyone singing with You Lie, All Your Life and If I Die Young. They also did a great cover of Queen’s Fat Bottomed Girls adding a lot of fiddle that sounded great and everyone singing along.
Brantley Gilbert and Jake Owen were really strong runner-ups for the Act To Watch last night. Brantley added some additional rap lines to Dirt Road Anthem and Jake Owen did the same to the song Barefoot Blue Jean Night.
Blake Shelton opened with All About Tonight and then went for the mellow songs with Drink On It, God Gave Me You, Over and Honey Bee.
