What better way to celebrate five years of the iHeartCountry Festival than with some of country music's biggest superstars?!

It was an amazing night of country music as a lineup of superstars rocked the stage at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas for the fifth straight year in a row. Performing this year were country artists including Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Dustin Lynch, Cole Swindell, Maren Morris, Sugarland, Luke Combs, Billy Currington, Dan + Shay, Jon Pardi and Brett Young, and taking on hosting duties once again this year was Bobby Bones along with Candace Cameron Bure.

There were a lot of surprises throughout the night, including the debut of a brand new song from Dustin Lynch, surprise collaborations from Luke Bryan and Cole Swindell, Keith Urban and Maren Morris, and Brett Young and Gavin DeGraw! The show also featured an appearance from everyone's favorite yodeling 11-year-old, Mason Ramsey. See more highlights from the show below.

Fans can relive the best moments from the show during a special TV broadcast on Sunday, August 5th at 8pm ET/PT on FOX. The two-hour show will showcase never-before-seen collaborations,  interviews with the artists, as well as guest appearances by Gavin DeGraw, Jana Kramer, Sam Palladio, Josh Henderson, Danielle Bradbery, Ryan Hurd and cast members from FOX’s hit drama, THE GIFTED.

Check out some of the best surprises from this year's iHeartCountry Music Festival and get ready to tune in on August 5th!
