Despite a seemingly unending batch of rain and lightning that delayed the ACM's Party for a Cause concert for a second day in a row — and, subsequently, CBS's taping of the ACM's Superstar Duets special, set to air in May — the performances that did make it to the stage of Arlington, Texas's Global Life Park were worthy of the wait. 

The concert kicked off with traditionalists Clint Black and Joe Nichols harmonizing on Black's "Nothin' But the Taillights," before the storm blew in. Once the skies cleared, a little before 11:00 p.m. CT, Miranda Lambert joined Patty Loveless, who has rarely performed live in recent years, for a sassy take on Loveless's 1993 chart-topper "Blame It on Your Heart." Other highlights of the night included Keith Urban singing with John Anderson on Anderson's "Swingin'," Kenny Chesney interpreting George Jones' "One Woman Man" and Jake Owen hushing the crowd with his earnest ballad "What We Ain't Got." 

After capturing exclusive behind-the-scenes photos of Night One's actionRolling Stone Country returned for more candid and backstage access.
