Justin Timberlake and Chris Stapleton blew fans away with their medley of “Tennessee Whiskey/Drink You Away

In 2015, the Country Music Association Awards saw an unforgettable performance by two music powerhouses: Justin Timberlake and Chris Stapleton. The duo brought down the house with a medley of “Tennessee Whiskey” and “Drink You Away,” showcasing their remarkable vocal talents and undeniable chemistry.

As soon as they took to the stage, Timberlake and Stapleton commanded attention with their dynamic presence and electrifying energy. They effortlessly transitioned between the two songs, with Stapleton’s gritty vocals complementing Timberlake’s smooth falsetto.

“Tennessee Whiskey” was originally recorded by David Allan Coe in 1981 and then later popularized by George Jones. Stapleton’s version, released on his debut album “Traveller,” breathed new life into the song and helped him gain widespread recognition in the country music world.

“Drink You Away” was a hit single from Timberlake’s critically acclaimed album “The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2.” While not a traditional country song, its bluesy rock influences made it a perfect complement to “Tennessee Whiskey.”

The performance by Timberlake and Stapleton was a highlight of the night and has since become one of the most memorable moments in CMA history. It showcased the versatility and cross-over appeal of country music, bringing together fans from all genres and backgrounds.
