Night 4 included performances by Charlie Daniels Band, Thomas Rhett, Lady Antebellum, Hunter Hayes, Zac Brown Band and Brad Paisley.
Charlie Daniels Band opened the show performing three songs including “Southern Boy,” “Tangled Up in Blue” and of course “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.”
After the Charlie Daniels Band took the stage, it was time for country newcomer Thomas Rhett to make his CMA Fest debut. The 24-year-old musician opened his set with his hip-hop-infused hit “All-American Middle Class White Boy.” Rhett also performed fan favorites including his first no. 1 hit “It Goes Like This,” “Beer With Jesus,” “Get Me Some of That,” “Something To Do With My Hands,” and his brand new single “Make Me Wanna.”
Lady Antebellum owned the crowd during their performance at LP Field. The band–Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley, and Dave Haywood–performed hit after hit including “Compass,” “American Honey,” and “Bartender.” Lady A closed out their set with “Need You Now,” “Downtown,” and “We Owned The Night.”
Hunter Hayes was the next artist to hit the stage. The 22-year-old GRAMMY nominated recording artist performed fan favorites such as “I Want Crazy,” “Tattoo,” “Invisible,” and “Wanted.” This year marked the third year Hunter has participated in CMA Fest.
Zac Brown Band was definitely the most talked about performers of the night at the 2014 CMA Music Festival. The band opened their set with performing “The Wind.” Following “The Wind,” Zac Brown Band performed their own rendition of David Allan Coe’s “You Never Even Call Me by My Name,” before continuing on with their own tunes “Sweet Annie,” “Colder Weather” and their latest single, “All Alright.” The band stirred up the crowd after calling Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora to the stage for a special performance of “Wanted Dead or Alive.” To close out such a powerful set, Zac Brown Band performed “Chicken Fried.”
Brad Paisley was the last performer to take the LP Field stage for the year. The year-old entertainer went out with a bang by performing “Water,” “Old Alabama,” “Ticks,” “Beat This Summer,” “River Bank,” and “Mud On The Tires.” The last song of the 2014 CMA Music Festival was “Alcohol.”
