Live @ CMT: Grace Potter - "Stars"

Music  |  Video

Grace Potter had a whirlwind of a year in 2012. Known for her high-energy performances with the Nocturnals, their non-stop touring schedule and acclaimed release The Lion The Beast The Beat has catapulted Potter and the Nocs into genre-crossing fame.

When the tour stopped in Nashville, Tenn. for a two-night run of sold-out shows at the Ryman Auditorium, Potter took time out to stop in the CMT studios for an unplugged performance. The performance is available on, but for her standout track “Stars,” Potter performed two takes. You can catch the acoustic guitar version exclusively in the player below.
