The latest installment of CMT On Tour, an annual trek that has featured future stars like Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert and Kip Moore, kicked off last night in New York City with two of the genre's hottest young artists: Brett Eldredge and Thomas Rhett.

Dubbed the Suits and Boots Tour, the show touched down at the Big Apple's Terminal 5 venue, with opening act Danielle Bradbery. Rhett opened the first installment — determined by a coin toss — with songs from his album Tangled Up, before Eldredge took the stage showcasing his latest LP Illinois. While each guy had his moment in the spotlight, it was their shared finale, a mix of jokes, drinks and songs, that sent the crowd over the top.

Here's the best photos, captured by Rolling Stone Country, from last night's tour kickoff.

Bringing the Funk

Rhett performed "Tangled," an Eighties-inspired country-disco track that recalls Bruno Mars tunes like "Treasure," segueing into a snippet of Mars and Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk."

The Finale

After joking around together for 15 minutes, Rhett and Eldredge closed the evening's nearly three hours of music with their duet of "You Can't Stop Me," their collaboration from Eldredge's Illinois.
