Let's throw it back to 2003 when Kenny Chesney and eighties rock star, John Mellencamp got together for CMT Crossroads and rocked the stage. One memorable performance that came from this CMT special was the "Jack & Diane" duet.  Seeing as "Jack & Diane" is one of the greatest songs of the century, according to RIAA, it just had to be played by the rock legend and Kenny.

"Jack & Diane" was released in 1982 on John Mellencamp's, then John Cougar's, American Fool album. It charted worldwide, reaching #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. It stayed there for four straight weeks.

Mellencamp is actually one of Kenny's musical idols and he has closed his concerts with "Jack & Diane" many times. These two obviously have the ability to entertain their audiences, as can be seen through their years of performing, but it can't be denied that something fantastic develops when they're singing together.

JACK & DIANE LYRICS

Little ditty about Jack and Diane
2 American kids growin' up in the heartland
Jacky's gonna be a football star
Diane debutante backseat of Jacky's car

Suckin' on a chili dog outside the tastee freeze
Diane's sittin' on Jacky's lap, he's got his hands between her knees
Jacky say, "Hey Diane lets run off behind a shady tree
Dribble off those Bobby brooks, let me do what I please"
And say a

"Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone"
Say a, "Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone, they walk on"

Jacky sits back reflects his thoughts for the moment
Scratches his head and does his best James Dean
Well you know Diane, we gotta run of the city
Diane says "Baby, you ain't missing nothing
Jacky say a

"Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone
Oh yeah they say life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone"

Gonna let it roll 'n' rock
Let it roll
Let the Bible belt come on down
And save my soul
Hold on to 16 as long as you can
Changes come around real soon
Make us women and men

Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone
Oh yeah they say life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone

A little ditty about Jack and Diane
Two American kids doin' the best that they cant
