Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood CMA Awards Duet Video: Watch CMAs Medley Performance!
Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood performed a medley of classic country songs at Wednesday’s 2016 CMA Awards. Watch their duet below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, this year marks the milestone 50th anniversary of the Country Music Association Awards, which were first held in 1967. Tonight’s ceremony in large part is about paying tribute to the industry. And Brooks and Yearwood made sure their time on stage would be nostalgia-packed.
Brooks told ABC last month, “All of the artists [performing] are pretty much saying the same thing. ‘Hey, screw my current stuff, whoever we need to pay homage to… count us in!'” Yearwood also said, “We’re excited about that because we have the opportunity to sing some of our favorite songs by some of our favorite artists. I think it’s gonna be a great CMA!”
Brooks and Yearwood, of course, are country music veterans themselves. He was the first to receive the CMAs’ Pinnacle Award back in 2005, and he’s nominated for Entertainer of the Year tonight. Brooks has already won that honor, the night’s top prize, four times before.
And during two of those years, 1997 and 1998, Yearwood was named Female Vocalist of the Year. Now the couple is gearing up to release a joint album, Christmas Together, for the upcoming holiday season. Check out full video of Brooks and Yearwood’s CMAs duet below!
