Despite the track being a megahit, not a lot of people know that “It Had To Be You” is almost a century old. Isham Jones wrote it and Gus Kahn crafted the lyrics in 1924. The first major recording of the song was in 1936 performed by Ruth Etting for the movie, “Melody in May.”

Ever since then, the song had shot to fame throughout the globe. Perhaps every classically trained artist dreamed of having to perform the classic track and put their twist into it.

While there are many great renditions of the song, Bennett and Underwood’s seems to be extraordinary.

With the hint of country in Underwood’s voice and with Bennett’s big-band style of singing, you wouldn’t think that the combination would be as great. But as it turned out, their voices blended perfectly.

They poured their hearts out in their performance inside a dimly lit space, as seen in the video. The round bulbs that illuminated the room set the mood for the viewers.

All in all, with the flawless singing and the heartwarming video, it was a captivating experience for the fans.

Meanwhile, during the recently held 2018 CMA, Underwood took the chance to announce that she is expecting another baby boy.

Before that, she also appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s show where she opened up about her pregnancy and gushed over her first son, Isaiah.
