Lainey Wilson surprised fans with a very special guest star during her performance on Day 3 of CMA Fest 2024 in Nashville on Saturday night (June 8). The reigning CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year invited Terri Clark to join her for Clark's '90s hit, "Poor, Poor Pitiful Me."

The surprise performance came second in a set that began with Wilson's latest single, "Hang Tight Honey," and wrapped with "Wildflowers and Wild Horses."

The moment was one of several surprise highlights Saturday night, which included:

  • Wilson joined Keith Urban during his set to perform "Go Home W U."
  • Urban joined Jelly Roll during his headlining set to play guitar on "Halfway to Hell."
  • Wilson joined Jelly Roll for the final song of the evening, "Save Me."

See Wilson and Clark's performance in the clip below:

Clark kicked off the third night at Nissan Stadium in Nashville with a five-song set of her greatest hits, followed by the War and Treaty. Old Dominion gave a crowd-pleasing performance before Wilson took the stage, and Brittney Spencer followed her by singing "I Got Time."

Urban performed next-to-last, offering up a mix of past and present hits, while Jelly Roll served up a mix of guest stars, smash hits and inspiration delivered with an almost gospel-like fervor. He addressed the crowd directly before performing "Son of a Sinner," reflecting on how far he's come since he was incarcerated as a teen in a detention center within ear shot of the concert venue:

Josh Turner, Megan Moroney, Brothers Osborne, Carly Pearce and more will take the stage at Nissan Stadium on Sunday night (June 9) to wrap up CMA Fest 2024, with Hardy scheduled to deliver a headlining set.
