In 2009, George Strait was given the ultimate honor by being named the Academy of Country Music's Artist of the Decade

To pay tribute the country icon, many artists gathered and performed some of Strait's greatest hits at the tribute concert. 

One particularly special duo was Jamey Johnson and Lee Ann Womack. The two took the stage and sang a breath-taking rendition of one of Strait's signature songs, "Give It Away". 

In 2006, Strait released "Give It Away" as the lead single from his album, It Just Comes Natural. Ironically, the song was co-written by Jamey Johnson! 

The song quickly rose to #1 on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, becoming Strait's 41st chart-topping single, which also broke the record of most number one hits on that specific chart. Conway Twitty previously held the record with 40 number one hits. 

The song's success didn't end there. In 2007, Strait was given the ACM Award for both Single of the Year and Song of the Year. Amazing! 

It was no surprise that Jamey and Lee Ann wanted to honor George with one of his most successful songs!

Check out the awesome performance below!

LYRICS BELOW

She was stormin' through the house that day
And I could tell she was leavin
And I thought, aw, she'll be back
'Til she turned around and pointed at the wall an said

That picture from our honeymoon
That night in Frisco Bay
Just give it away
She said, give it away
And that big four-poster king-size bed
Where so much love was made
Just give it away
She said, just give it away

Just give it away
There ain't nothin' in this house worth fightin' over
Oh, and we're both tired of fightin' anyway
So just give it away

So I tried to move on
But I found that each woman I held
Just reminded me of that day
Hmmm

When that front door swung wide open
She flung her diamond ring
Said, give it away
Just give it away
And I said, now, honey, don't you even want
Your half of everything
She said, give it away
Just give it away

Just give it away
There ain't nothin' in this house worth fightin' over
Oh, and we're both tired of fightin' anyway
So just give it away

So I'm still right here where she left me
Along with all the other things
She don't care about anymore
Mmmm, like that picture from our honeymoon
That night in Frisco Bay
She said, give it away
Well, I can't give it away
And that big four-poster king-size bed
Where all our love was made
She said, give it away
Well, I can't give it away
I've got a furnished house, a diamond ring
And a lonely broken heart
Full of love and I can't even give it away
