Watch CMT Artist of the Year Honorees Cover Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down”

This years CMT’s Artist of the Year was very special this year. Seeing all the artists pull together and pay tribute to the victims of the recent natural disasters and the Vegas shooting was truly touching. It could not have been more fitting for several of the artists to perform together¬† their rendition of recently passed Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down.”

This is why I love country music. We pull together. We won’t back down. And We are Country Strong.
