Corey Kent took the stage first, performing his rock-influenced country singles “Gold,” “Wild as Her,” and “This Heart.” Next up was George Birge, who used to be one half of the duo Waterloo Revival.

Connor Smith then took the stage to perform “Smoky Mountains,” “Creek Will Rise,” and “Roulette on the Heart.” Next, Dillon Carmichael performed a traditional country set infused with rock influences on his songs “Raised Up Wrong,” “Tiny Little Fiddle,” “Son of A,” and “Drinking Problems.”

Moroney, meanwhile, closed out the show with her songs “Lucky,” “I’m Not Pretty,” and “Girl in the Mirror.” She sang through shifting emotions and vulnerabilities on each single, expertly accompanying herself on acoustic guitar. According to a report from Taste of Country, Moroney has an innate ability to use her facial expressions and body language to convey the tone and mood of a song, excelling beyond the use of her vocals.

She closed her set with “Tennessee Orange,” her viral hit that put her on the country music map. She used every moment of her allotted time, engaging with the audience while setting up for her next song. That’s a professional move, not letting any dead air linger, and it looks like Megan Moroney is well on her way to becoming a household name.
