Watch Lady Antebellum Team With Aloe Blacc on Avicii’s ‘Wake Me Up’

Country trio and soulful singer pair for CMT’s ‘Ultimate Kickoff Party’ in Dallas

While the big news of Monday night’s gridiron clash was Ohio State’s 42-20 upset win over Oregon, the musical entertainment leading up to the collegiate sporting event of the season provided quite a wake up call all on its own.

On Friday (January 9th), superstar trio Lady Antebellum and R&B sensation Aloe Blacc teamed up for the CMT Ultimate Kickoff Party at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas, collaborating on a lively version of the ubiquitous pop hit, “Wake Me Up.” Lady A also took the opportunity to perform their latest single, the equally invigorating “Freestyle,” during the event. Toby Keith, Maddie & Tae, Brett Eldredge, Big & Rich, Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett were also on the bill.

On game night Monday, Lady A and Blacc were on hand at AT&T Stadium in nearby Arlington, where the country-pop threesome performed the national anthem and Blacc sang “America the Beautiful,” joined by budding singers from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. A pre-game tailgate party also featured a set by Zac Brown Band.

Last week, Lady A revealed plans for the global Wheels Up 2015 Tour, which gets underway next month with Hunter Hayes and Sam Hunt along for the ride.
