Last night, Budweiser kicked off CMA’s week with the Official CMA Awards Showcase called “The Budweiser Country Club” with performances by country music’s rising stars…Lindsay Ell, Clare Dunn, Kassi Ashton and The Sisterhood Band and surprise appearances by Cassadee Pope and Natalie Stovall at the legendary EXIT/IN in Nashville.
Budweiser gave fans the opportunity to see their favorite acts over an ice-cold Bud, and fans started to queue hours before the doors opened with a line around the block. It was a night full of female power house performances and surprises with country covers of Led Zeppelin, Bob Seger, The Beatles John Mayer and a surprise grand finale for an all-female jam session.
The night kicked off with The Sisterhood Band, followed by Kassi Ashton, Clare Dunn and Lindsay Ell, who brought out all of the night’s performers plus Cassadee Pope and Natalie Stovall for a surprise grand finale and cover of The Beatles’ “With A Little Help From My Friends.” The evening benefitted the “It Starts with M.E. (Music Education)” Campaign.
