Lady Antebellum, along with several other artists, took the stage during the Countdown to the CMA Awards: 15 Songs That Changed Country Music in 2014 to pay tribute to legendary musicians and their memorable songs. One tune in particular that had an impact on the country genre is Dolly Parton and Kenny Roger's "Islands In The Stream".

"Islands In The Stream" was actually written by Barry, Robin & Maurice Gibb of the Bee Gees. It was released as the first single from Kenny Rogers' Eyes That See In The Dark album in 1983. The song was an instant crossover hit and charted worldwide, reaching #1 multiple times.

The talented folks of Lady Antebellum really blew us away with this performance. During it, we get to hear some commentary from both Dolly and Kenny. "I love that song the same way the fans do," Dolly says. "As soon as I hear that first note of the intro, I just want to sing along with it." Well, Dolly, we definitely agree with you!

What do y'all think?





ISLANDS IN THE STREAM LYRICS

Baby when I met you there was peace unknown
I set out to get you with a fine tooth comb
I was soft inside
There was something going on

You do something to me that I can't explain
Hold me closer and I feel no pain
Every beat of my heart
We got something going on

Tender love is blind
It requires a dedication
All this love we feel needs no conversation
We ride it together, ah ha
Making love with each other, ah ha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah ha
From one lover to another, ah ha

I can't live without you if the love was gone
Everything is nothing if you got no one
And you just walk in the night
Slowly losing sight of the real thing

But that won't happen to us and we got no doubt
Too deep in love and we got no way out
And the message is clear
This could be the year for the real thing

No more will you cry
Baby I will hurt you never
We start and end as one
In love forever
We can ride it together, ah ha
Making love with each other, ah ha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah ha
From one lover to another, ah ha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah ha
From one lover to another, ah ha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah ha
From one lover to another, ah ha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
