Joe Nichols Encourages Fans to “Take It Off” During CMA Fan Social

Swarms of country music fans packed downtown Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon Saturday afternoon (June 11) for the fifth annual CMA Fan Social hosted by CMT. The free, three-hour concert featured performances by Joe Nichols, Thompson Square, Kristin Chenoweth, CMT’s Next Superstar winner Matt Mason, the Civil Wars and the Harters. Each artist performed their newest singles and answered questions following their set. Thompson Square delighted the crowd with their No. 1 hit “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not” as well as their newest single, “I Got You.” Nichols closed the evening with an engaging seven-song set including a string of hits featuring “Brokenheartsville,” “Size Matters,” “The Impossible,” “Who Are You When I’m Not Looking,” “Gimmie That Girl” and his latest single, “Take It Off.” In fact, during “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off,” a few enthusiastic fans threw articles of clothing onstage. “What are you gonna do after that?” the singer joked. The event was hosted by Top 20 Countdown host Evan Farmer. View photos from the CMA Fan Social.
