We were so hoping this would happen, especially after Carlile announced her producing partnership with Tucker on a brand-new album. It will be absolutely phenomenal, and with these two, there’s no tellin’ what might happen. The party follows Tanya, and we can’t wait to see it all!

Underwood will take the stage tonight, but it won’t be the Bridgestone mainstage. The superstar will perform LIVE during the show at the Parthenon monument at Nashville’s Centennial Park.
