A slew of Nashville’s finest recently headed to Australia for the CMC Music Awards and the CMC Rocks QLD Country Music Festival.

The awards were co-hosted by Kelsea Ballerini and featured performances from Florida Georgia Line and Jason Aldean.

Cam, The Cadillac Three, Chase Rice, Drake White, Brantley Gilbert, Kip Moore and Lee Brice were also Down Under for the festival and almost every one of them did the same thing with their free time– visited Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.

Cam cuddled up with Rodney. I hope she named him that, but also if he is already named that, we like it.

Not sure if this is Rodney or not, but Kelsea checked this moment off her bucket list.

Jason Aldean and his wife Brittany went for the traditional family portrait style photo.

Jason also got a pic with some ‘roos.

For some reason, Tyler Hubbard didn’t get a pic with a koala, but his wife took this cool one of a koala.

Pretty sure Chase Rice also met Rodney. Can’t confirm, so we’ll have to ask Rodney.

Is this kangaroo mocking him or just posing like him?
