When we are talking about country music duos, many would eventually pop out into our minds but there will always be of Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn in our hearts. These two amazing artists have become sweethearts on the stage and many fans fell in love with their tandem. No one can beat their partnership as they have already become icons when it comes to singing together.
Together, Twitty and Lynn delivered some of the greatest tunes in country music. Their impeccable vocal prowess and blending harmony exude a message of pure talent and artistry. Too bad, we have lost Twitty too soon. He passed away in 1993 at age of 59.
Nonetheless, his music will forever be played as he released chart-topping songs that stormed different music charts. Moreover, his music with Lynn was one of the finest. One of the most famous songs that they have sung together was “After the Fire is Gone.” This performance earned both artists accolades that added to their names.
In fact, Twitty and Lynn were proclaimed as the Vocal Duo of the Year at the CMA Awards for four years in a row. Furthermore, CMT validated this fact when it named “After the Fire is Gone” as the 10th greatest country duet of all time. It was shown in its CMT 100 Greatest Duets Special.

However, perhaps the greatest honor of all is that their songs together have been immortalized by their fellow artists. It has become a part of country music history and has since then served as a standard duet for aspiring duos.
During the CMT 100 Greatest Duets Special, modern-day artists took to the stage to render their own versions of some of the most prominent duets in country music. Show hosts Trace Akins and Terri Clark immortalized Twitty and Lynn when they performed “After the Fire is Gone.” Definitely, they did an outstanding job as they received a massive applause from the audience.
Their performance was noteworthy and if Twitty were still alive, he would be very proud. Lynn, on the other hand, was for sure impressed even though she was not present at the event.
