Day 2 of the Cavendish Beach Festival, July 6, opened under blue skies and sweltering temperatures, but a stiffening breeze took away some of the scorching heat. Hitting the stage were Canadian country star Livy Jeanne, winners of Season 2 of the CTV hit series, the Launch (Cassiopea, Michelle Treacy, Olivia Lunny, T. Thomason, Maddie Storvold and Saveria), Shawn Austin, Chad Brownlee and Russell Dickerson. Closing out the evening was Nashville superstar and multi-platinum songstress Carrie Underwood.
