There were moments during ABC’s “CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock” where some might have wondered where the country music was.
And then, they found it.
Lady Antebellum and Cam delivered what was one of the most beautiful performances of the night on Aug. 3 when they delivered a hauntingly beautiful performance of the chart-topping “Burning House.”
The song is gorgeous enough with Cam just singing it, but when Lady Antebellum was added to the harmonies, there was just nothing like it.
Since its release in July of 2015, “Burning House” has gone on to surpass more than 1 million downloads and is one of the biggest hits from a female artist.
“I feel like it’s because it’s a really vulnerable place for me,” Cam told Rare Country during an interview earlier this year about the tearjerker of a song. “I think — there’s not a lot of times that you get to just sort of cry and be sad. Nowadays, everybody kind of pushes it aside. It’s really cool to have people sing it back to me. Like, on their faces, they have this expression — how I felt when I wrote it. The same mood. So, the fact that that translated makes me really happy about it.”
