Days after music legend Ray Charles passed away, dear friend and CMT Crossroads duet partner, Travis Tritt payed tribute to him in the most beautiful way possible.

The two unlikely duet partners were paired up for a CMT Crossroads episode on Dec 6, 2002. Ray was frail, but still singing with tons of energy! Unfortunately, he passed away on June 10, 2004 from acute liver disease. 

Tritt wanted to honor his friend at his Grand Ole Opry performance a few days after Ray's passing. He performed Ray's version of "Georgia On my Mind" while sitting on a stool. He embodied the legendary soul singer so well, he even sounds like him!

The audience definitely could feel Ray's presence, and gave Tritt a standing ovation after the performance.

Ray had to be smiling down on Travis, who honored him so well. Watch the incredible performance below.

Lyrics Below

Georgia, Georgia,
The whole day through
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind
I said Georgia
Georgia
A song of you
Comes as sweet and clear
As moonlight through the pines
Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you
I said Georgia,
Ooh Georgia, no peace I find
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind
Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you
Georgia,
Georgia,
No peace, no peace I find
Just this old, sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind
I said just an old sweet song,
Keeps Georgia on my mind
