CMT HOT 20 COUNTDOWN
Captures Traffic-Stopping Moment

Rising star Chase Bryant recently went above and beyond to surprise fans camping at Tuttle Creek State Park, just north of Manhattan, KS. After performing an electrifying main stage set at the recent Kicker Country Stampede, the 22-year-old decided he’d bring the party to fans that didn’t have the best vantage point for the show. Bryant waded through thousands of people until – throwing caution to the wind – the young RED BOW Records artist climbed atop a nearby party bus. Bryant then invited fans onto the roof of the party bus WITH him, bringing traffic in the campground to a halt and rousing a huge crowd of cheering fans as he performed an acoustic set.
“It’s like family, friends, fans,” Bryant tells CMT Hot 20 Countdown on his decision to bring the music to fans in the back of the campground. “They’re all the same to me. We’re all a big family.”
CMT Hot 20 Countdown captured the exhilarating moments that fans at Kicker Country Stampede won’t soon forget.
