A medley of “Tennessee Whiskey/Drink You Away” was performed by Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake

The Country Music Association Awards (CMA) is an annual event that recognizes and celebrates the best in country music. In 2015, the awards ceremony was held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, and featured performances by some of the biggest names in the industry.

One of the most memorable performances of the night was delivered by Justin Timberlake and Chris Stapleton. The two artists teamed up for a medley that included “Tennessee Whiskey,” which was originally recorded by George Jones in 1983, and “Drink You Away,” a song from Timberlake’s album, “The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2.”

The performance began with Stapleton singing the opening lines of “Tennessee Whiskey” while playing his guitar. Timberlake soon joined in, and together they performed a soulful and bluesy version of the song that showcased their impressive vocal range and musical abilities. As they finished “Tennessee Whiskey,” the crowd erupted into applause, and Timberlake grabbed his microphone to introduce the next song.

“Drink You Away” was a departure from the traditional country sound of “Tennessee Whiskey,” but it still managed to blend seamlessly with the medley. The song featured Timberlake’s distinctive pop and R&B style infused with a country twist. As the two artists sang the chorus, the crowd sang along and cheered them on.

Overall, the performance by Justin Timberlake and Chris Stapleton was a standout moment of the 2015 CMA Awards. It showcased the power of collaboration and the ability of country music to appeal to a diverse audience. The medley went viral on social media, and many fans praised the duo’s performance as one of the best in CMA history.
