The CMA performances by Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake singing “Tennessee Whiskey” were possibly the greatest

The Country Music Association Awards (CMA) have seen some incredible performances over the years, but few can compare to the duet of Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake singing “Tennessee Whiskey” in 2015. It was a performance that left the audience stunned and earned both artists a standing ovation.

Stapleton’s powerful voice and Timberlake’s soulful delivery blended perfectly together, creating a rendition of the song that was truly unforgettable. The chemistry between the two performers was palpable, and it was clear they were having as much fun on stage as the audience was in the crowd.

The performance was also notable for introducing a new generation of fans to Stapleton’s music. While he had been an established songwriter in Nashville for many years, his debut album Traveller had only just been released that year. His performance with Timberlake helped introduce him to a wider audience and cemented his place as one of country music’s brightest stars.

Five years later, the impact of that performance can still be felt. “Tennessee Whiskey” remains one of Stapleton’s most beloved songs, and the duet with Timberlake is often cited as one of the greatest CMA performances of all time. It’s a testament to the power of great music and the magic that can happen when two talented performers come together on stage.
