Country’s top hit makers and some of this year’s ACM Award nominees, which included Greg Bates, Cassadee Pope, Florida Georgia Line, Justin Moore, Brantley Gilbert and The Band Perry performed in front of a crowd of thousands, all in the name of raising awareness and funds for a variety of charities. Donations supported Outnumber Hunger, an initiative from General Mills, Big Machine Label Group and Feeding America.
Florida Georgia Line stepped off the stage to greet fans during “Dirt Road,” were hyping up the crowd with a country version of Lil’ Troy’s “Wanna Be A Baller,” and had the ladies going nuts during their sexy performance of “Dirt Road” – even a bra was thrown onstage. Cassadee Pope sang her new single “Champagne,” and Brantley Gilbert dedicated “Fight” to fiancée Jana Kramer who was watching his performance.
The Band Perry ended the night with an acoustic version of The Lumineers’ hit song “Ho Hey” and had the whole crowd singing. Dog “The Bounty Hunter” Chapman and singer Brett Eldredge were spotted in the audience as well.
