Lindsay Ell Shines at Country Music Awards in Nashville

This week, the CMA Awards went down at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. Garth Brooks began the night with a moment of silence for the victims of California’s latest shooting at a country bar. Lindsay Ell was part of an incredible show-opener featuring Luke Bryan, Luke Combs, Chris Janson, Ashley McBryde, Jon Pardi and Cole Swindell as they sang ‘What Makes You Country’. Kacey Musgraves won Album of the Year for Golden Hour (which I have not stopped listening to since the second I had it). Shocker; Keith Urban grabbed Entertainer of the Year… very deserving!
