  • Riley Green kept the party going with “Damn Good Day To Leave” and “Hell Of A Way To Go.” The artist sang his most recent hit, “Worst Way,” released last month and brought it back to 2018 with his first #1 on Country Radio, “There Was This Girl.” The lights dimmed and his set concluded with “I Wish Grandpas Never Died,” as sweet photos of Green and his grandpa flashed on the screen behind him.
  • Lady A immediately brought the heat with an arena lit in red as they kicked off their set with legendary hit, “Hey Bartender.” The iconic trio also performed fan-favorites “American Honey,” “We Owned The Night,” and “Need You Now.” Just when fans thought their set was over, the legends came back out for an encore performance of “What If I Never Get Over You,” as the live audience, and those watching from home around the world, sang along in awe.
  • Jelly Roll sang his first #1 on Country Radio “Son Of A Sinner,” “Need a Favor,” and more. He closed out his set with a profound speech thanking his fans and iHeartRadio for changing his life then performed his hit single, “Save Me.”
  • Jason Aldean tore up the stage with some of his most iconic singles, starting with “My Kind Of Party.” The standout continued with “Trouble With A Heartbreak,” “Let Your Boys Be Country,” and took it all the way back to 2005 with the hit that started it all, “Hicktown.” He even brought out John Morgan, a new artist on the scene, to sing his latest single, “Friends Like That,” featuring Aldean. The icon finished with “She’s Country,” closing out an unforgettable night at the 2024 iHeartCountry Festival.
