Old Dominion paid tribute to Alan Jackson on the final night of CMA Fest with a performance of one of the country music icon’s biggest hits.
During their set at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium on Sunday (June 12), the reigning CMA and ACM Group of the Year performed Jackson’s 1993 chart-topping hit, “Chattahoochee.”
Way down yonder on the Chattahoochee… 🔥

Fans went crazy for OD’s rendition of the ‘90s country hit, reacting with cheers and applause while they sang along. Lead singer Matt Ramsey even made his way down to the platform stage to get up close and personal with those watching the show from the front row.

Ahead of the performance, the group explained that they felt it was fitting to honor Alan Jackson as he canceled his CMA Fest performance and fans were unable to see him perform.
Old Dominion also performed their hits such as “One Man Band,” “Hotel Key” and “Make It Sweet.”
Sunday night’s CMA Fest nightly concerts also featured performances by Sara Evans, Lady A, Elle King, Dierks Bentley, Parker McCollum, Russell Dickerson, and more.
Portions of the show were filmed for the much-anticipated concert special, CMA Fest, set to air on ABC on Wednesday, August 3 at 8/7c.
After performing at CMA Fest, Old Dominion is preparing to head to Philadelphia, PA’s Lincoln Financial Field for the next show on Kenny Chesney’s Here And Now Tour. The group is slated the appear on the stadium shows of the tour, which runs through August 27.
