Digital Journal further quotes Poleman as comparing the starry night to a family reunion. "The vibe back stage is like a family reunion, where the superstars get to reconnect and hang out. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind iHeart event.”   

John Sykes, President of Entertainment Enterprises for iHeartMedia, echoed the same sentiments when he said, "What makes this Festival special is that it is the one night the A-list of Country Music comes together to perform live, collaborate with friends and spend time together as a family. Everyone stays to support each other until the last band has walked off stage.”
