From luke bryan. ♪ Take it from me girl ♪ Reporter: To carrie underwood. ♪ Reporter: To little big town. ♪ Reporter: And brad paisley. It's a who's who of the best in the business. With 70,000 or 80,000 country fans that had to do whatever they had to get here. They see themselves in us, because we sing songs about them. Their neighbors. The people that they work with. Songs about life. Avnsd it's real people. It's only fitting that we give back. If it weren't to them, we wouldn't be doing what we're doing. ♪ This is country music ♪ it represents something important which is giving back to fans. Reporter: Just how do they give back? By rocking the house. ♪ Turn it on turn it up ♪ ♪ and sing along ♪ Reporter: Artists like blake shelton. ♪ I should just drink on it put our heads together on it and drink on it ♪ why are country fans so special? I think there's probably a stronger bond in country music than there is in any other genre. As far as first of all, artists and their fans. But also among the artists. I mean, we're all buddies. Reporter: So what can fans look forward to from him next, a chris magazine album. ♪ Jingle bells jingle all the way ♪ I was impressed with of the fact that I didn't completely throw you off. Me, too.

When you're hosting, you can bring your energy to kind of set the tone for the feel of the stadium and then the feel of what people are watching at home. ♪ I recognize a lot of faces when we come here and play because it's a lot of people that go to our shows all across the country. It's one of the coolest festivals that there is, simply for the fact it' kind of all about the fans. If it weren't for them, none of us would have a job. It's a country music party. Nashville does it right down here. We just look forward to getting here, being in front of the fans. Being able to tell them thank you, face-to-face.
