Brothers Osborne, Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley teamed up for an all-star performance of an Allman Brothers Band classic during CMA Summer Jam.

Joined by Lambert’s band, the trio of superstars came together for a special performance of “Midnight Rider” by The Allman Brothers Ban during the star-studded event at Ascend Amphitheater in Downtown Nashville. “Midnight Rider” is the second single from the Allman Brothers Band’s second studio album, Idlewild South (1970), which was released via Capricorn Records.

“My CMA Summer Jam performance is gonna be fun,” Lambert explained ahead of the performance. “It’s gonna be a hot sweaty mess, but it’s gonna be fun. I’m singing with two of my pals: John and T.J. Osborne and Dierks Bentley, so I get to hang out with my buddies and sing some country music and some rock and roll so what’s not to love.”

Also during the show, Brothers Osborne sang “It Ain’t My Fault,” while Lambert sang “Settling Down,” “Kerosene,” and “Tequila Does.” During the televised special, Bentley was joined by HARDY and BRELAND to perform “Beers On Me,” in addition to performing “Gone.”
