Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, Jason Aldean and Rascal Flatts headlined the first day of the CMA Music Festival Nissan Stadium shows, but guest performers like Elle King and Randy Travis were the biggest surprises.
A growing list of 2016 CMT Music Awards performers have been announced. The show is being billed as "Country Music's Loudest Night," and its all-star lineup includes some of the biggest names in country music.
The big winner at the 2016 ACM Awards was Chris Stapleton, but none of his big wins make our Top 5 from the April 3 ceremony. The show was performance-heavy, and there are some spectacular performances to talk about today and all week.
