The performer lineup was star-studded with some of the biggest names in country music ready to pay their tribute to the 50th CMA Awards, and their love for the genre.


The anticipated performance of duets between Alan Jackson and George Strait did not disappoint.

They started the show off with ‘Remember When’, originally written and performed by Alan Jackson, released in 2003. During the performance images of country legends who have passed displayed behind him including Johnny Cash, June Carter Cash, and George Jones.


George Strait came on stage and began with his 2008 song ‘Troubadour’, after a few lines they sang together in a duet for an epic performance. Other performers did not disappoint, the medley from Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood performing famous duets was memorable. An inspiring evening as they celebrated their love for country music.

When celebrations and collaborations of iconic country singers meet the result often amounts to goosebumps as with the collaboration between Shania Twain and Willie Nelson.

In celebration of Willie Nelson’s 70th birthday celebration, they took to the stage to perform a single from Nelson’s 1975 album, ‘Red Headed Stranger’. An amazing performance of ‘Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain’ moved the audience as celebrations continued.
