Justin Timberlake CMAs Video: Watch CMA Awards Performance With Chris Stapleton!
Justin Timberlake performed at the 2015 CMAs on Wednesday with Chris Stapleton. Check out the video below!
Timberlake and Stapleton took the stage at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena to duet on “Tennessee Whiskey” and “Drink You Away.” Teaming up with the pop superstar made a big night for the up-and-coming country singer even bigger. Stapleton went into the ceremony nominated not just for New Artist of the Year, but also Male Vocalist and Album of the Year.
Traveller, Stapleton’s debut solo album, was released in May. It peaked at number two on the Billboard country chart, and at 14 on the Billboard 200. And while’s just not getting attention as an artist in his own right, he spent years writing for the likes of Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Luke Bryan, and even Adele.
Timberlake’s team-up with Stapleton was just announced on Monday, though the two are longtime friends. After the news broke, Timberlake tweeted a photo from rehearsals, writing, “Honored to share the stage with this BADASS. Wed night. Memphis x Nashville.” His pal replied, “The feeling couldn’t be more mutual #nashvilletnkids.”
