Hunter Hayes is getting the CMA party started in Nashville. The country star will play a free pre-awards concert outside the Bridgestone Arena Monday night. The show is also being staged in conjunction with the USO's "Every Moment Counts" program, and will honor a military member and his family. 

Hayes is leading the lineup for the event, which also features his "Tattoo (Your Name)" tourmates Dan + Shay and The Railers, as well as Charlie Worsham and Ryan Kinder. 

The 48th annual CMA Awards will air live from Nashville on ABC this Wednesday.
