The artists have 36 ACM awards and 21 CMA awards combined, so the night was nothing short of entertaining. Sony Records’ newest artist, Tenille Townes (above), opened with her most known hits “To Make You Feel My Love” and “What A Wonderful World.”

 

Next up was the enthusiastic and lively band that kept mentioning their excitement to be back in Tampa, Little Big Town: Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook, and Phillip Sweet had about an hour-long set. The crowd went wild and sang along with drinks in the air to “Day Drinkin,” everyone swooned to the photos while the band sang “Happy People” and Little Big Town conducted the audience through the heartfelt song “Better Man,” which led into a set of the somber songs. After that set, a smoke machine hit the stage for the song “Rocket Man.” The audience regained their initial excitement and hype once the band performed their hit “Pontoon” and wrapped their set with “Stay All Night.”

Then the moment we all waited for…the fierce Miranda Lambert! As the stage transformed into a homey barn, Lambert opened with “That’s the Way the World Goes Round” then headed into her hit “Kerosene,” a song that the females in the crowd knew and sang all so well. Speaking of females in the crowd, if you couldn’t hear them singing before, you heard them during Lambert’s hit, “Mama’s Broken Heart.” Lambert per usual played with raw emotion and transparency and everyone felt it when she closed her set with “Tin Man.”

As Lambert closed, Little Big Town came back onto the stage leading into their song “Girl Crush”, which Lambert sang with them. After “Girl Crush,” Lambert and Little Big Town shut down the show together, singing about six songs collectively such as “Goodbye Earl,” “Little White Church,” Little Red Wagon” and ending the night with a soulful collaboration of “Lean on Me.”
