Saturday night's CMA Music Festival lineup included a wide variety of talent from former rock star Steven Tyler to Blake Shelton. The night opened up with Marshall Tucker Band, quickly followed by The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. 

Murfreesboro native and CMA board member, Chris Young performed on the Nissan Stage at 8:30 pm, followed by Cole Swindell and Florida Georgia Line. 

Both superstars in their own right, Steven Tyler and Blake Shelton closed out a night filled with country anthems. 

Earlier in the day, the RFD-TV booth celebrated up and coming country music at Fan Fair X in Nashville's Convention Center as two rising country acts came and signed autographs.

Thirteen-year-old classic country singer Bailey James stopped by the booth to sign t-shirts and autographs Saturday morning. James' voice is VERY reminiscent of the legendary Patsy Cline while her song lyrics speak to kids her own age. James credits legendary artists such as Patsy Cline, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Hank Williams Sr., and Johnny Cash as musical influences. She performs regularly at the Bluebird Café in Nashville, TN. You can find out more about her music here!

Later the country duo, TOWNE, stopped by the RFD-TV booth. This  Nashville-based  powerhouse  duo  consists  of Pennsylvania-bred,  music  theater geek  Steevie  Steeves and  straight-from-Kentucky,  former  bassist  for  punk-rock  band,  The  Pink  Spiders,  Jon  Decious. Their recently released music video for their soul grabbing debut single, “Runnin’ Into You” and their debut project, “Games We Play” is now available online. You can find out more about TOWNE here
