Jelly Roll Makes Historic Debut at 2024 CMA Fest

For a fifth consecutive year, Spotify House hosts special guests and surprises during CMA Fest in Nashville, while rising star Jelly Roll makes history as the first rapper to headline Nissan Stadium.

AceShowbiz - For a fifth year, Spotify House proved to be the ultimate hub for surprise performances and star-studded appearances during the CMA Fest weekend in Nashville. Blake Shelton's Ole Red bar on Broadway became a bustling venue, showcasing both seasoned headliners and rising artists, all while treating attendees to thrilling unannounced acts.

The streaming giant's Hot Country playlist transformed Ole Red into a hotspot where big names like Keith Urban and Post Malone mingled with upcoming talent. Day One featured the likes of Cole Swindell, Little Big Town and Old Dominion. However, the real anticipation ignited when Post Malone took the stage, performing an acoustic, country-tinged version of "Sunflower" and a duet of "Pour Me a Drink" with Shelton. "Let's hear it for our new adopted son in country music," Shelton enthused, acknowledging Malone's seamless crossover into the genre.

Day Two continued the momentum with performances from Lady A (formerly Lady Antebellum), Mickey Guyton and Breland. The stage became even more electrifying with surprising duets, such as Corey Kent bringing Lauren Alaina to debut new material. Keith Urban and rising star Dasha's mashup was another highlight, rendering the audience spellbound.

Jelly Roll's compelling presence was felt both at Spotify House and at Nissan Stadium. A Nashville native, Jelly Roll's transformation from juvenile detention inmate to country music star reached a peak during his headlining act at CMA Fest's Saturday night (June 8) show at Nissan Stadium. His powerful performance of "Halfway to Hell" was joined by Keith Urban, turning the arena into a sea of emotion and triumph.

Jelly Roll's poignant message to the crowd-dedicating his performance to the incarcerated teens he once was among-underscored his narrative of redemption and hope. "I am from Nashville, Tennessee!" he declared, his voice resonating with the dreams of a local boy-made-good.

Meanwhile, LOCASH took a reminiscent trip down memory lane at the Tin Roof, performing lively hits and a medley of rock classics, turning their set into an unparalleled, joyful experience. "Let's get this party rockin'," Chris Lucas exclaimed, leading into a series of crowd-pleasers.

From genre-bending collaborations and heartfelt dedications to high-energy performances, this year's CMA Fest was more than just a gathering of country's finest; it was a resounding celebration of music's power to unite, inspire and transform. With surprises at every turn, the festival lived up to its promise, leaving young fans exhilarated and eagerly anticipating next year's event.
