Last NIGHT (2/28), SONY MUSIC NASHVILLE hosted its annual GENERAL JACKSON cruise down the CUMBERLAND RIVER for CRS 2013.
In addition to treating industry professionals to dinner and drinks, SONY showcased several artists during the event.
SONY MUSIC NASHVILLE Pres. GARY OVERTON hosted the evening, introducing artists MIRANDA LAMBERT (with guests BLAKE SHELTON and PISTOL ANNIES), "American Idol" winner TATE STEVENS (with a special video introduction by SIMON COWELL), THE HENNINGSENS, JERROD NIEMANN, CHRIS YOUNG and KELLY CLARKSON who drew a standing ovation featuring THE PISTOL ANNIES as her backup singers.
At the end of the evening, BRAD PAISLEY took the stage. After performing two songs off his current album "Wheelhouse," BRAD started singing a few lyrics from REO SPEEDWAGON's "Take It On The Run." Then, the classic rockers surprised those in attendance to finish the song (and several others) with help from PAISLEY on electric guitar and SARA EVANS on backup vocals. As a grand finale, all the evening's artists joined together for a final sing-along to a standing ovation.
