    Twelve country music stars played the Louisville Palace Thursday Dec. 10, 2015, to benefit St. Jude Children's Hospital.  Over the course of four hours and four sets, each artist took turns playing songs at the 2015 Acoustic Jam hosted by Window World and 97.5 WAMZ.

    Highlights:

    Set One:
    Lee Brice, Jerrod Niemann, Cassadee Pope

    Set one set the tone for the evening as Brice, Niemann and Pope interacted with each other and the fans as if they were sitting in your living room playing songs just for you. Some of the highlights include Lee Brice recounting how he met his wife by serenading her with Eric Clapton's "You Look Wonderful, Tonight" and then explaining how he wrote "I Don't Dance" for her. This was followed up by Jerrod Niemann playing "What Do You Want" humorously explaining that he wrote this for his wife as well, but only after they had broke up.

    Set Two:
    Trace Adkins, Chase Bryant, Raelynn

    ​Of the four sets, this was the most mellow.  Which just shows how great of a concert Acoustic Jam was:  Adkins, Bryant and Raelynn could sell out stadiums if they all went on tour together. Yet, on Thursday night, they were bit players.

    ​Set Three:
    Scotty McCreery, Thompson Square, Laura Alaina

    Laura Alaina stole set three and may have been the highlight of the night. She kicked off her performance with "Next Boyfriend" and invited a lucky fan from the front row to dance as she sang.  However, Alaina got more than she bargained for, as this fan knew how to dance.  To keep up with him, she remixed both the "Watch Me" and "The Stanky Leg"  into "Next Boyfriend."   This resulted in an crowd pleasing ovation and a new energy in the Palace.

    Set Four:
    Chris Stapleton, Brothers Osborn and Brandy Clark

    What a way to end the night, with three Grammy nominees on one stage.  Laura Aliana was a hard act to follow, but this was Kentucky native Chris Stapleton's show, as his home state fans were ready for his appearance. Stapleton proved why he has four Grammy nominations and his album, "Traveller," is up for Album of the Year. It was a tough stage to play on, but Brothers Osborn and Clark did not disappoint. Despite having to play with the crowd favorite, Stapleton, they did their part to put an exclamation point on an amazing evening.
