Billboard Presents Bud Light Backyard at CMA Fest Kicks Off With Electrifying Sets From Corey Kent, Dalton Dover and Alana Springsteen

The beer and music were flowing at the first day of Billboard Presents Bud Light Backyard at CMA Fest as fans took a break from the Nashville heat and took in some great performances by some of today’s hottest hitmakers at a jammed Tin Roof on Lower Broadway on Friday (June 7).

Fans enjoyed line dancing lessons on the first floor between performances, then packed the second floor for top-notch sets by Corey Kent, Dalton Dover and Alana Springsteen.  

Kent, an RCA Nashville artist and Oklahoma native, earned the attention of major labels after “Wild as Her” started climbing the charts in 2022, based on streaming. After signing with RCA Nashville, Kent scored his first major hit as the song reached No. 3 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. 

UMG Nashville/Mercury Records artist Dover first caught fans’ eyes and ears with his well-chosen covers on TikTok before he started releasing his own songs, such as “You Got a Small Town” and “Baby I Am.” His debut radio single, “Giving Up on That,” was the most-added track at radio upon its release. 

Springsteen, who first picked up the guitar at age 7 and was writing her own songs with top Nashville songwriters by the time she was 10, issued her debut album, Twenty Something, last year on Columbia Records New York/Sony Music Nashville. 

The two-day free event, open to anyone 21+,  is a partnership between Billboard and Bud Light that also includes branded content running on the two brands’ digital channels throughout 2024. The shows continue with LOCASH, George Birge and Dasha, who will perform Saturday (June 8).
