Sometimes you witness a moment and quickly realize it will become a part of history. That’s exactly what happened when Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake teamed up for a pair of songs last night at the CMA Awards. Performing Stapleton’s “Tennessee Whiskey” and Timberlake’s “Drink You Away” the duo brought the Bridgestone Arena to their feet and had them cheering throughout the commercial break. There aren’t even words to do the performance justice, you just have to watch in amazement.
Here’s who took home some hardware at the CMA Awards tonight:
The CMA Awards are right around the corner. Dubbed country music’s biggest night, the performances are really just a way to get people tuning in. In reality it’s all about the awards. Country’s best performances are honored with a host of awards celebrating all types of achievements.
The CMA Awards air live on Wednesday November 5 at 8pm. Hosted, once again, by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood it’s a show that brings out the best and brightest stars in country music including some impressive performances (complete list here). The night dedicated to the best of country music over the past year will likely morph into a George Strait love fest at some point, before returning to it’s usual format. We’ve outlined all the major awards including who we think will take home each award. Winners of the awards can be found here.
