Country superstars from all around took to the 2016 iHeartCountry Festival in Austin, Texas on Saturday (April 30) for a star-studded night of music. From Florida Georgia Line to Keith Urban and Sam Hunt, we celebrated all things in the country music game. After all, city officials did declare April 30, 2016 as the official iHeartCountry Day.

In honor of our big time show, we've rounded up some of the best moments of the night. Take a look below!

1. Can we talk about Zac Brown Band's INCREDIBLE tribute to Prince? Mid-set, the band covered The Purple One's 1984 classic hit "Let's Go Crazy" in front of a backdrop of purple rain drops, reminding folks just how powerful his legacy remains.

2. Florida Georgia Line was on the performance roster and offered the sold-out crowd with their BRAND NEW song "H.O.L.Y." for the very first time every, and it was AMAZING. Props to the glow in the dark wristbands!

3. Chris Young surprised the crowd during his set and brought a very special guest: Cassadee Pope! Yep, that's right. The former "Voice" contestant arrived for a performance of the duo's duet "Think of You."

4. Lindsay Ell also made a surprise guest appearance and joined iHeartCountry Festival hosts Bobby Bones and Brooklyn Decker on stage for a quick in-between skit, which may or may not have included a joke aimed at Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert. Bloop!

5. SAM HUNT and the love he has for his fans. That is all. Do we even need to say more?

6. Lee Brice also brought out a surprise guest performer: Jerrod Niemann. The two performed their brand new collaboration together, “A Little More Love,” and now we’re just a little more IN love with them.

7. Cole Swindell performed his emotional single “You Should Be Here,” which is inspired by his late father, and also covered Justin Timberlake’s “Drink You Away.”

8. Earl Dibbles Jr. (You know, Granger Smith) made an appearance during the festival and showed us exactly what his infamous alter ego is good at.


9. Keith Urban absolutely SHREDDED on the guitar.

10. As the closer of the evening, Miranda Lambert opted for a set that simply comprised of her band and her guitar. No pyro. No stage effects. Consider it an example of what the good ol' formula has always been for the singer/songwriter. With set inclusions like "Fastest Girl In Town" to "Baggage Claim," "Mama's Broken Heart" and "Little Red Wagon," there was no shortage of attitude in the singer's voice, strut and glare. It's as if a certain romantic split has lit another fire under the Texan. Talk about a silver lining!
