Carrie Underwood, Dwight Yoakam Duet CMA Summer Jam (Video)

The annual summer bash and fan gathering CMA Fest cancelled for a second year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But with restrictions loosening a bit recently, the Country Music Association went ahead with a two night concert instead, held at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater. The CMA Summer Jam will air later this summer on ABC.

The first night went down Tuesday (July 27) and featured performances from Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Luke Bryan, Mickey Guyton, Dwight Yoakam, Cole Swindell, and Lainey Wilson.

Carrie closed out the night with a set that included many of her beloved hits including  “Blown Away,” “Before He Cheats,” and “Two Black Cadillacs.” According to CMT, she also had a bit of fun with the audience, noting that she had been watching Blake Shelton’s and Luke Bryan’s performances from backstage.

“But I think everybody knew that closing this thing down was a woman’s work,” she quipped.
