Rock reigned supreme at tonight’s anxiously awaited CMT Music Awards, highlighting the vast impact the genre has had on the country music world as Gregg Allman’s life and legacy became the center of a star studded tribute courtesy of Derek Trucks and country stars Jason Aldean, Darius Rucker, and Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley.
Allman’s wasn’t the only indelible mark left on country music’s biggest night, however, as Grammy Award winning rock legend Peter Frampton made a highly anticipated appearance alongside country duo Brothers Osborne in one of the most buzzed about performances of the night, serving up a boot stomping good time for the audience and viewers at home as they embarked on a musical adventure that’s sure to keep us all talking for days – if not weeks – to come.
