CRS 2013 is a three-day event, bringing together radio programmers and air staff members to share information, to learn how to improve what they already know how to do...and to be treated like rock stars by record labels and the artists!

Scott Borchetta, President & CEO of Big Machine Label Group, pulled out all the stops last night at a place called 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville. Directly following the Country Radio Hall of Fame Induction, where George Strait received the Life Achievement Award, we were taken downtown and treated to a buffet, an open bar...and great entertainment provided by The Band Perry, Raelynn, Thomas Rhett, Cassadee Pope, Justin Moore, Tim McGraw and surprise guests, Rascal Flatts.

The Band Perry rocked their new single 'Done' and finished with their #1, 'Better Dig Two'. Raelynn, a contestant on the voice, performed her latest single 'Boyfriend'. Thomas Rhett, who wrote Jason Aldean's latest single '1994', performed it, and we learned just how to 'Joe Diffie'.

Cassadee Pope, last season's winner of The Voice, showed just why Blake Shelton was so high on her, and completely set Nashville on it's ear!

Justin Moore thanked country radio for allowing him to do what he loves to do and performed 'Til My Last Day' 'If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away' and his latest 'Point At You'. Everyone was prepared for Tim McGraw to wrap up the night then, when a Gospel Choir stepped out on stage,

and out came Rascal Flatts to perform and amazing version of 'Changed' before

Tim McGraw does what he does best, brought down the house!! This was only day #1, and CRS officially doesn't even kick off until today..stand by for more
