Each artist was able to showcase their unique skills, with Smith's incredible belt the highlight at the end, and Ell's guitar skills the highlight at the bridge. Having two such incredible rising stars coming together creates a new sort of collaborative image of Nashville, and Bobby Bones is at the forefront of it. Whatever you may think about him, he does have an ear for incredible artists, and provides lots of opportunities for them. You can thank Bobby for Cam blowing up, and the recent recognition of Smith and Bailey Bryan. He really has been a champion for women in country music, and it's important to recognize that.
