DAVID BEEBE, ABC Dir./Video Production said: "We went to a lot of fan club parties with artists, and we spent a great deal of time filming on their buses or even at their houses to give that exclusive feeling and intimacy. We talked with a wide range of artists from the names you would expect to see and a lot of up-and-coming acts as well."
In the video series, BENTLEY takes viewers into his late-night fan club party; ALDEAN gives an exclusive look at his "huddle" with the band to get pumped up before performing at LP FIELD; GLORIANA shows off their "bus mascot" given to them by TAYLOR SWIFT; and SHELTON makes a special request of PICKLER to watch his dogs and his mother while he heads out to perform. In a special video where stars give back to the fans, viewers get to witness LAURA BELL BUNDY cleaning up after fans and GLORIANA on janitorial duty at the festival.
