This Sunday night, live from Vegas the Academy of Country Music Awards are set to take place, bringing incredible performances from Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia Line, and many more. On this #TBT let’s take a look back at some of our favorite collaboration performances and moments from the prestigious award show.
At last year’s ACM Awards, Florida Georiga Line sang their most recent single “God, Your Mama and Me” with help from boy band Backstreet Boys then they all did the iconic dance to “Everybody” together, making a memorable moment for all watching.
Back in 2014, Hilary, Charles, and Dave of Lady Antebellum collaborated with Stevie Nicks to sing the title track from their 2013 album Golden. The addition of Nicks’ voice to their already incredible harmonies made for quite the performance.
Power vocalist Carrie Underwood took the stage to perform with rock icon Steven Tyler. They sang her single in 2001, “Undo It” then finished their performance with “Walk This Way”. This moment was a definite highlight of the 2011 ACM Awards.
One of our all-time favorite duets, Reba McEntire and Kelly Clarkson are reviving this 2007 collaboration this Sunday night at the ACMs. Back in 2007, they performed a heartfelt, emotional rendition of Clarkson’s “Because of You”. Which song do you think they will sing together this year?
Brad Paisley joined by John Mayer performed “Beat This Summer” at the 49th Annual ACM Awards back in 2013. The duo went head to head shredding on their electric guitars, wowing the viewers.
