The people of the world came together on Monday (June 2) to (unofficially) kick of the 2014 CMA Music Festival. Featuring artists of all walks of life, music became the centerpiece of the CMA GlobaLive Showcase, which included artists from Australia, New Zealander, Canada, the UK and Sweden. As the crowd trickled in, the diversity of country music lovers was a talking point throughout the evening, emceed by singer-songwriter David Bradley (who also played a rousing set late in the evening).
Of course, several standout musicians from this side of the Atlantic played throughout the night, proving to possess the skills needed to captivate the crowd with just a voice and a guitar. One of those truly remarkable performers was the Canadian born-and-bred Jaida Dreyer, who has made quite the name for herself through her work with ABC's hit drama Nashville. In the past several months, the singer has had three songs featured on the show, "Dreams," "This Town" and "Tell Me."
