Blake Shelton kicked off the star-studded CMA Summer Jam concert special with a few of his biggest hits.
The superstar opened the show with “Minimum Wage” and “Boys Round Here” and later performed “God’s Country.” He also shared the stage with his wife, Gwen Stefani, to perform their chart-topping hit, “Happy Anywhere.”
Shelton couldn’t have been more excited to perform at Ascend Amphitheater for CMA Summer Jam.
“I’m always excited to be in front of country music fans and it’s a blast to step out there and every night is just kind of a jolt when I’m on stage and people are singing my songs that some of those songs go back 20 years now and it’s crazy when I see kids that weren’t born yet that are out there partying, drinking beer, to some of my earlier songs,” Shelton shared prior to his performance. “It’s unbelievable.”
CMA Summer Jam also featured performances from Jimmie Allen, Gabby Barrett, Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne, Luke Bryan, Luke Combs, Eric Church, Darius Rucker, Florida Georgia Line, Mickey Guyton, Miranda Lambert, Carly Pearce, Cole Swindell, Thomas Rhett, Carrie Underwood, and Lainey Wilson.
Additionally, the three-hour show included star-studded collaborations by Bentley with HARDY & BRELAND, Underwood and Dwight Yoakam, Lambert with Brothers Osborne, Florida Georgia Line feat. Thomas Rhett, as well as Swindell & Bryan.
