    On Thursday, legendary duo Brooks & Dunn surprised the audience when they stepped onstage during Brothers Osborne‘s set to perform “Hard Workin’ Man,” which is featured on B&D’s new Reboot album. TJ and John also brought up their friend Ashley McBryde to perform her cut on the duo’s album of their huge hit, “You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone,” also featured on Reboot.

    Carrie Underwood (CMA Fest-Joan Jett) OC: …off on me. :25
    “I get to sing with Joan Jett, guys! Whooooo! (I’m) super excited. I feel like we’ve had connections and bumped into each other in various places, and the stars just aligned. It was kind of like, ‘What if Joan Jett came to CMA Fest?’ ‘Well, let’s ask her.’ So, she’s here. The coolness has arrived, and I’m hoping some of it rubs off on me.”

    Audio / Backstage before her Nissan Stadium performance at this year's CMA Music Fest, Carrie Underwood explained why she's a huge fan of rock legend Joan Jett, who joined her on stage to do a medley of her hits.

    Carrie Underwood (CMA Fest-Joan Jett) 2 OC: …sing with me. :25
    “Just hearing her songs on the radio and the more I got to know and see just how much of a trailblazer she was for, not just women in her genre of music, but women in music in general…I mean, I’m a fan on every level — personally, professionally, musically and honored that she’s heard my name before and agreed to come sing with me.”

    Audio / Backstage at Nissan Stadium on Sunday night (June 9th) before his scheduled CMA Music Fest performance, Keith Urban talked about making a surprise appearance to perform with Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus on "Old Town Road."

    Keith Urban (CMA Fest-Old Town Road) OC: …with him last night. :23
    “I just loved the song when I heard it. I love the record too, you know? Those are sometimes very separate things – the song to the record — but I just loved it and wanted to do my little cover version of it on my ganjo. From that very spontaneous moment, Nas saw the piece that I did and really loved it apparently, and next thing you know, I’m playing with him (and Billy Ray) last night.”

    Audio / Backstage in the press room, Jon Pardi talks about his collaboration with Thomas Rhett on "Beer Can't Fix" and their first live performance of the song during this year's CMA Music Fest.

    Jon Pardi (Thomas Rhett song) OC: …short hair now. (laughs) :44
    “So (claps), me and Thomas (Rhett) go back to the long hair days — two songwriters trying to figure out who they’re gonna be in country music. I was so happy when he texted me and asked me to be a part of this record, and I was like, ‘Of course! Like come on! What song?’ He sent me two and we decided to sing ‘Beer Can’t Fix,’ ’cause it’s an anthem. It’s a no-brainer. For two male artists to sing a song together, I think it’s perfect. it’s about, well, drinking a beer. It’s fun, and I would say there’s a full-circle (moment) for me and him to walk out on Nissan and sing, for the first time ever, this song together. I don’t know. I think it’s cool, and we have short hair now.” (laughs)

    Audio / Backstage at Nissan Stadium during this year's CMA Music Fest, TJ Osborne of Brothers Osborne talked about how the collaboration with Brooks & Dunn came about on the legendary duo's "Hard Workin' Man," which appears on their Reboot album.

    Download

    Brothers Osborne (Brooks & Dunn) OC: …of us both. :46
    First we were asked, ‘Are you guys fans of Brooks & Dunn?’ I just thought it was a ridiculous question to ask if you’re not a fan of Brooks & Dunn, then you shouldn’t be in this genre. But, so then it was like, ‘What song are we gonna do?’ Then it was a little tough because Ronnie’s voice is so high and obviously, I have a baritone voice, of trying to get a song to work for both of our strengths, and then a song that lends itself to a lot of guitar parts and then ‘Hard Workin’ Man,’ it became pretty obvious that was a really great song, but that also took abandoning one of the guitar hooks in that song. It was just crazy, because we wanted to do it like Brooks & Dunn did it, because we just love the song, and they wanted to do it like we would do it. It was a really interesting thing. I think the way that it turned out was really great. I’m really proud of it, and I think it really is a perfect kind of mix of us both.”

    TJ: “When we first came to Nashville, we had dreams of playing, like ‘Oh my God, are we ever gonna play there?’ And it never even crosses your mind – you’re not playing the stadium. It’s just not happening. And now to circle around and to be playing here, it’s wild. The feeling of it is not lost on us, even the slightest. It’s hard to really, honestly put it into words. It’s literally every kid’s dream, even if you don’t become a musician, you still dream about being on that stage. And we used to come, when we would come, it was Fan Fair, and we would see artists performing on these stages and be like, ‘Gah, we’d just give anything to be in their shoes.”

Yeah, it’s a remarkable thing to get to be a part of a mass of people who wanna listen to music. It’s great.”

    Underwood made a brief stop in Los Angeles between concerts to perform her new hit single, “Southbound,” on the grand finale of “American Idol.”  The feel-good, high-energy tune opens Underwood’s show on tour and is quickly shaping up to be one of the hottest songs of the summer (https://bit.ly/2K0Tsjn). She will take another short break in the tour schedule for upcoming appearances at the Grand Ole Opry (June 4), CMT Music Awards (performing and nominated for two awards on June 5) and headlining at CMA Fest 2019 (June 7), before additional shows in the U.S. and The Cry Pretty Tour UK in late June and early July. THE CRY PRETTY TOUR 360 continues in North America in September and October.

    In addition to attracting sold-out crowds, Underwood and THE CRY PRETTY TOUR 360 are garnering rave reviews:
    “The 360 production is second to none.  Underwood’s 360 stage is a work of art,
    as it features an incredible hydraulic system that lifts up nearly half the stage…
    You could almost say you’re getting a show and a movie, all in one night.”  ROLLING STONE

    “An artist that both entertains and inspires, Underwood’s Cry Pretty Tour 360 cements her entertainer of the year status.”  BILLBOARD

    Luke Bryan (American Idol 2 finale) OC: …potential of year three. 1:00
    “I think as we got into the first year and America really started watching what we were doing and then now, just the talent level this year has been amazing. I mean, our Top 10 was really, really something special to watch. Every person that’s went home in the Top 10 has been a dagger to the heart. I think we’ve really set forth what our show is about now. It’s about uplifting this talent, bringing ‘em, encouraging them, and just making sure that when they walk in the doors of Idol, we’re gonna give ‘em great feedback and we’re gonna look after ‘em and treat ‘em as good as we can. Tat’s the main thing. Me, Lionel and Katy, we have to enjoy our role, we have to enjoy interacting together, and it’s so fun being up there with them in the trenches and stressing with them about who’s going through to the next round and stuff like that. So, I’m loving the show and looking forward to the potential of year three
