Ashley McBryde and Gretchen Wilson Perform “Redneck Woman” at CMA Fest 2024

CMA Fest was held in Nashville earlier this month in Nashville.

Have you been before?

It’s one of the biggest parties in Nashville, to be sure, and is chock full of fantastic performances.

So much so, that ABC has a CMA Fest Special every Summer, and I think this year’s was one of the best.

First off, the hosts, Jelly Roll and Ashley McBryde, did a GREAT job. Usually the hosts can be awkward and stilted, but they both did a great job and kept the show going. And one of the performances that I was looking forward to was Ashley McBryde with Gretchen Wilson. I feel like Ashley could be Gretchen’s younger sister, right?

Of course, they performed Gretchen’s massive hit “Redneck Woman”, and it was awesome:

That needed to happen, right?

Also, there were a LOT of really good performances featured last night, and the “CMA Fest 2024” is now streaming on HULU.

Give it a wtch when you get the chance!

Post Malone and Blake Shelton Debut New Song at CMA Fest!

CMA Fest is about to wrap up in Nashville today.

If you’ve never been, it’s an insane four days in downtown where all of Country’s biggest acts, as well as upcoming acts perform. And Nashville is already packed enough, so add thousands of Country music fans, and the place goes banannas.

Some cool surprises came out of this weekend, including Post Malone and Blake Shelton performing their new collab for the first time called “Somebody Pour Me a Drink”:

Here’s a clip of part of the song that’s on youtube:

That’s basically just a part of the song played over and over,  in case you thought it was a bit repetitive.

I always end up having to explain the obvious to people, so I thought I’d just get that out of the way.

Anyhow, it sounds fun, cathcy, and definitely a party song.

I mean, it’s Blake Shelton and Post Malone… what did you expect?

But you have to admit it’s the perfect Summer party song.

Honestly, I’m really looking forward to seeing what else Post Malone has up his sleeve with his upcoming Country project!

And to get you ready, here’s Post Malone covering George Strait at CMA Fest this weekend:

@cheycheygzz him + country music just mesh so well together #cmafest #cma #nashville #postmalone #tennessee #georgestrait #fyp ♬ original sound – ☆ cheyenne ☆

You know this project is going to be insane, right?

Miranda Lambert and Avril Lavigne Perform at CMA Fest!

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE Miranda Lambert? Just a little bit?

Avril Lavigne was also my jam when I was in college, and going through a semi-angsty phase. Not really, but I wanted to be, so Avril was definitely on my 2003 playlist. Damnnn… that was 20 years ago?


Anyhow, both icons joined forces at CMA Fest in Nashville over the weekend and did a hella performance of Miranda’s “Kerosene” and Avril’s “Sk8er Boi”:

I was hoping to find a higher quality video today, but this is what I got.  But still, you don’t need pro video to hear how awesome these two are!

The CMA Fest Highlights will be airing July 19th on ABC.

Hopefully, this perfomance will make the cut! (I mean, it has to, right???)
