It was a throwback to the good ol’ days of country music Tuesday night (April 12) in Nashville as Lauren Alaina, Dustin Lynch, Craig Campbell, Adam Craig, Adam Sanders and Michael Ray celebrated country music of the 1990s.
The event, held at the Exit/In in Nashville, saw current chart-toppers and newcomers hit the stage to perform their favorite hits of the ’90s. New artist Adam Craig, joined by Craig Campbell, kicked the night off with their own rendition of BlackHawk’s “Goodbye Says It All.”
Each artist had a surprise guest join them onstage to perform their own ’90s hit.
- Mark Wills joined Adam Sanders to sing his 1999 song, “She’s In Love.”
- Marty Raybon and Mike McGuire of Shenandoah joined Michael Ray on their hit, “Two Dozen Roses.”
- Martina McBride joined Lauren Alaina for her 2003 hit—but we’ll let it slide—“This One’s for the Girls.”
- Rhett Akins joined Dustin Lynch for a rousing rendition of Rhett’s “That Ain’t My Truck.”
But it was the show’s end that had the crowd in a frenzy as the artists returned to the stage for an all-star version of Garth Brooks’ “Friends in Low Places,” reminding us all that we like it, we love it, we want some more of it.
Check out a few clips from the show.
