Hosted by Kimberly Williams-Paisley and Blair Garner, the inaugural Disco Party to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association kicked off CMA Fest week on June 4 at Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon.

Brad Paisley, Hunter Hayes, Charles Esten, Lindsay Ell, Chuck Wicks, Jerrod Niemann, Jamie O’Neal, High Valley, Ryan Kinder, Todd O’Neill and CJ Solar donned their best disco-era duds and hit the stage to perform tunes from the 1970s and ’80s.

In addition to raising awareness in the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease, the event raised more than $300,000 through a silent auction.

Performance highlights from the night include Jamie O’Neal’s “Lady Marmalade,” Hunter Hayes’ “September” and Charles Esten’s “Play That Funky Music” with Brad Paisley on guitar.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
