Alan Jackson, George Strait Team Up for a Legendary Performance

by

In 2016, history was made at the Country Music Association (CMA) when it celebrated its 50th-anniversary show. Some of the biggest names in country music joined together and performed a one-of-a-kind production that there has ever been. This includes some legends in their most epic opening number that has made fans really happy and overjoyed.

The whole show did not disappoint as it kept on giving surprises and fantastic performances. From Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood’s medley duet to Brooks & Dunn’s comeback performance, every single number was worth watching. Indeed, it was one of the best (if not the best) shows that the CMA has ever pulled off.

Alan Jackson and George Strait’s Duet of Hits

On that same night, two of the most well-loved country legends shared the same stage for an epic duet. Alan Jackson and George Strait, who started their careers in the ‘70s, teamed up for an exciting number.

Many fans were elated when they were announced to be doing a duet. That night came and the two icons were introduced by hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. Jackson opened the performance with his 2003 hit “Remember When.” Images of country legends who passed away were flashed on the screen behind. It included the photos of Johnny Cash, June Carter Cash, George Jones, Merle Haggard, and Patsy Cline.

On the other hand, the King of Country, George Strait, then appeared from backstage. He started rendering his 2008 song, “Troubadour.” After a few moments, Jackson and Strait joined together for a duet of their hits. Their vocals perfectly complemented each other, and the performance was impeccably nostalgic. It was a performance you should not want to miss.

Everyone was on their feet and was singing along with the two icons. It was very obvious that they respect and look up to these two living legends. Truly, they are “two of the best we’ve got,” as Brad Paisley said in his introduction. They are two of the remaining gems of country music and what a way to see them perform together on one stage.

Check out Jackson and Strait’s amazing performance at the 2016 CMA Awards here:
