Oh the CMA Awards last night…. simply amazing! Three hours of uninterrupted bliss seeing some of my favorite country music artists in their spiffy outfits and watching fabulous musical performances.
One moment stood out to me…in a huuuuuge way. Literally obsessed with it now, and it’s probably one of the best music collaborations I’ve ever heard. Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake, each singing one of their songs (“Tennessee Whiskey” and “Drink You Away”, respectively).
You MUST watch. And then Google Chris Stapleton to read more about his years in the music business before releasing hit singles this year…and, oh you know, winning New Artist of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, and Album of the Year last night. BOOM.
One of the things I love most about the CMAs are how much the country music community truly seems to support each other’s lives and music. And they aren’t afraid to show how much they’re enjoying a particular moment. Did you notice Hillary Scott from Lady Antebellum absolutely JAMMING to this performance? Or Keith Urban just being in awe of the musical talent in front of him?
Love it all.
And now I’ll go watch it…again…for the gazillionth time 🙂
