CMA Crashers

Are we surprised that Jeff convinced more than one CMA Artist to sing with him? Jeff and Justin and crashing the CMAs and somehow found their way into an area to meet a lot of artists. They are the XTU CMA Crashers!

The two left on Friday, November 3rd and drove across the country from Philly to Nashville in order to see what kind of magic can happen for them in Music City during CMA week. If you want to see them visit Dollywood or the Birthplace of Country Music Museumclick here and follow the CMA Crashers page.

What Is The “CMA Crashers”

Last year, the Andie Summers Show won the CMA for Major Market Broadcast Personality.  Andie & Shannon were invited to fly to Nashville and accept the award while being able to interview a ton of artists.

This year, XTU was nominated for Major Market Station of the Year.  I believe this is the 4th straight year of being nominated for Major Market Station of the Year and unfortunately, we did not take home the Win! Super bummer!

How can you not have XTU down at the CMA Awards?  That would be a travesty!

So…What did we decide to do?  Shhh, don’t tell anyone.  We decided to Crash the CMA’s.  Jeff Kurkjian from The Andie Summers Show and XTU weekend DJ extraordinaire Justin Franiak will rent a car and drive down to Nashville.  The CMA’s are being held on Wednesday, November 8th and you need a ticket to get in.  They might not be able to get a ticket but the artist interviews are being held on Monday & Tuesday.

Keep listening and checking back to this page to see Jeff & Justin’s CMA Crashers journey as they travel from Philly to Nashville.  What could possibly go wrong?

Jeff Singing With Pretty Much Every CMA Artist

  • It Started With Nate Smith

    Jeff decided to share his love for XTU Nation with a live Ten Minute Tune. He changed the lyrics of “Whiskey On You” by Nate Smith but to sing about XTU. Nate was all about it and the video was adorable.

  • Jeff and Luke Combs Sing The Ultimate Love Song

    Both Luke Combs and Jeff Kurkjian danced with their wives to “Beautiful Crazy” on their wedding days. So, they decided to sing it together. How special??

  • Jeff Crashed Russell Dickerson's Song Writing Session

    This had a couple tiers of singing here. First, Jeff “wrote” a song for Russell that is very familiar to him. Then they sang his number one song together!

  • Gabby Barrett Gets A New Version Of Her Song

    Gabby Barrett’s biggest single to date is “Good Ones” but Jeff took a new take on it but from the guy’s perspective. Then he SANG it!

  • Then A Little "Hey Driver" With War And Treaty

    They just released a version of this song with Zach Bryan. their vocals are SO GOOD! Jeff felt a little uncomfortable messing with their amazing (married) harmonies so he mostly played Luke the Uke on this one.
