Shaboozey made his CMA Fest debut with a performance of his viral hit, “A Bar Song (Tipsy).”

The buzzed-about country star surprised fans when he appeared on the b-stage in the center of Nissan Stadium during the 51st anniversary of the iconic Nashville festival to perform his chart-topping single.

“Someone pour me up a double shot of whiskey/ They know me and Jack Daniel’s got a history/ There’s a party downtown near Fifth Street/ Everybody at the bar gettin’ tipsy/ Everybody at the bar gettin’ tipsy/ Everybody at the bar gettin’ tipsy,” Shaboozey sang on the tune’s chorus.

Before his one-song set at Nissan Stadium, Shaboozey shared his excitement with the Country Music Association (CMA).

“This is my first CMA fest. I’m so excited to perform on the main stage at the Nissan Stadium,” he exclaimed. “This will be my first ever stadium, and I’m super excited to just be out there and sing my songs…. We’re ready. I got a great team, and they just coached me through it, and they just tell me to just go out there and have fun. So it’s cool. It’s awesome.”

Prior to his Nissan Stadium performance, the 29-year-old singer/songwriter from Virginia shut down 5th avenue and Broadway with his performance on the Good Molecules Reverb Stage, drawing a capacity crowd with thousands of fans singing along to every word. Shaboozey even got emotional during his performance, overwhelmed, as he couldn’t believe that his dreams were coming true.
