"I like your hat." That's what Keith Urban said to me when he saw the GoPro I was wearing on my head during the 2015 CMA Music Festival.

For four steamy days in June, I mounted a GoPro to my trusty – yet very worn – Atlanta Braves hat and set off to document the annual festivities in Nashville. I looked like a goofball the entire time and got many confused looks from some of the 85,000 fans in attendance – but it was totally worth it! I wasn't expecting the musicians to be too surprised, given how ubiquitous GoPro cameras are these days, but I was quickly proven wrong and treated to some delightful reactions.

Luke Bryan, Little Big Town, Darius Rucker, Lady Antebellum and more country stars danced and chatted with me (um, the camera) and I even got a few dance moves out of Cole Swindell. Maddie & Tae and RaeLynn laughed with (er, at) me, and Randy Houser almost (but not really) took a bite out of the camera. As if these moments weren't enough, Brett Eldredge kindly cleaned the camera lens and topped if off with a kiss – not to me (sadly), but to the camera. A girl can dream, right?

I may have looked slightly (some might say very) ridiculous, but I think the final product was well worth it – what do you think?

CMA Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock airs Tuesday, Aug. 4 at 8 pm ET on ABC.
