Hey, Celeb Secrets Country readers! One of the most exciting times of the year is officially upon us… it’s CMA Fest week!
To get you ready for four days and nights of nonstop music, CMT holds one of the loudest nights in country music; the 2016 CMT Music Awards.
This year, the CMT Awards honored country music’s biggest stars, but the real celebrations didn’t start until it was time for the after parties. We had the opportunity to attend Warner Music Nashville’s party Downtown and had a blast.
The party was filled with fans and music industry professionals. Guests were treated to a wide variety of food and drinks along with a fun photo booth to take photos with all their friends (yes, that’s us in the pic above ^^).
The event kicked off with a performance from Warner’s sibling duo High Valley. Brad and Curtis Rempel performed their climbing single “Make You Mine,” along with songs off their upcoming record.
Following High Valley, Warner Nashville’s newest artist RaeLynn took the stage for a special performance. RaeLynn performed her smash hit “God Made Girls,” covered Selena Gomez‘s “Good For You,” and even played her newest single for everyone in the audience. The new track is called “Wild Horse,” and we’re pretty positive it will be your new favorite tune once its available. Check out this clip of RaeLynn covering Selena Gomez below.
After RaeLynn, it was time for everyone to hear what Ryan Kinder had in store for the evening. Kinder played his songs off his new Deconstructed EP along with an epic cover of Justin Bieber’s “Sorry.”
The night was truly one to remember. Huge shoutout to everyone at Warner Nashville for inviting us — we can’t wait till next year!
