Thursday kicked off the 2017 CMA Music Festival in Nashville, aka one of the biggest gatherings of country music EVER!
The four-day event is stacked with hundreds of country artists year-after-year and the best part about the festival is that you never know who will show up where.
Every night at Nissan Stadium (home to the NFL's Tennessee Titans), a lineup of country's biggest stars ranging from Luke Bryan to Trace Adkins take the stage to perform a 4 hour show. While the lineup has been announced for some time though, fans are always subject to a surprise!
Garth Brooks was supposedly no where to be seen on this year's lineup, but rocked the 60,000 capacity stadium when he randomly showed up to perform some of his biggest hits to the shocked audience!
