Just like that – CMA Fest 2019 came to a close with a final night of star-studded performances at Nissan Stadium.
Kicking off Sunday’s festivities was “Best Shot” singer Jimmie Allen, who was on hand to deliver a performance of the National Anthem.
Sunday’s lineup also consisted of David Lee Murphy, Chris Janson, Trisha Yearwood, Old Dominion, Maren Morris, Keith Urban and Luke Bryan.
While Sunday night’s show wasn’t stacked with surprises guests like the previous nights of the festival, each act delivered a stand-out performance that had fans on their feet all night long.
Some highlights of the show included Janson’s high-energy set that put his musical talents on full display, Morris’ show-stopping performance of “My Church” and Urban asking showrunners to dim all the lights while fans turned on their cell phone flashlights to light up the stadium while he played “Somebody Like You.” Bryan closed the show with an energetic set that featured several of his biggest hits.
