Mitchell Tenpenny, Caylee Hammack

Country Now had the chance to catch up with Mitchell Tenpenny, Caylee Hammack, Jillian Jacqueline, Bailey Bryan and Adam Hambrick before they took the stage at the sold-out Firestone Country Roads Stage at Ascend Amphitheater on Friday (June 7) during CMA Fest.

To make things interesting, we decided to put their musical knowledge to the test and play a fun round of The Song Association Game.

Here’s how it worked: Country Now gave the artists a word and they had to say the first song that came to their mind after hearing the word. For example, we said “rain” and Tenpenny’s answer was “Let It Rain” by David Nail. Some of the words even stumped them!

Watch it all go down in the clip above.

A portion of proceeds from tickets sold for the Firestone Country Roads Stage at Ascend Amphitheater benefit the CMA Foundation and its mission to shape the next generation through high-quality music education.
