Nashville Plays with Motley Crue


On Wednesday night in Nashville, music execs and a host of others were entertained by dynamic sibling trio The Band Perry, introducing their driving next single “Chainsaw” followed by newcomer Danielle Bradbery, who showcased her killer pipes on songs from her debut album. ACM New Artist of the Year nominee Justin Moore kept the energy up with “Lettin’ The Night Roll” before bringing Vince Neil of Motley Crue to the stage for the band’s “Home Sweet Home.” The excitement continued with Brantley Gilbert joining on “Wild Side.” Borchetta brought Vince back to the stage as everyone belted out “Kickstart My Heart.”

The unlikely pairings were just a preview of the forthcoming Country Tribute to Motley Crue, slated for release this Summer on Big Machine Records. Eliciting more crowd participation, Brantley closed out the evening with a rowdy set featuring his latest single “Bottoms Up.”
