When one country legend honors another in song, you know it's gonna be good, and this performance is no exception. During the 2015 ASCAP Country Awards, Trisha Yearwood was not only honored by the association with the "Voice of Music Award", but by some legendary artists performing a few of her timeless hits. 

In the 53rd annual awards ceremony, Reba McEntire took to the stage to honor her longtime colleague with a truly impressive and heartfelt performance of "The Song Remembers When"

The Voice of Music Award is presented to "songwriters and artists whose music gives voice to the spirit of a generation. Each recipient possesses a unique style of creative genius that will inspire and enrich generations to come." The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers awarded Yearwood the title for her extraordinary successes, beginning with her debut in the early '90s. "Yearwood has given young women voice through song with powerful lyrics about love, loss, and staying true to your own self."

Yearwood was incredibly touched to be the recipient of such a high honor and opened up about what being selected to receive the award means to her:

"I have such reverence and such respect for songwriters. I'd been doing demos for them long before I ever had my first record deal, and they were friends to me on that first album.

You know new artists back in the nineties on their first album didn't always get the top drawer songs, but they knew me, so they gave me good songs.

I have to thank  Jon Ims  for 'She's in Love with the Boy' and  Greg Barnhill  for 'Walkaway Joe' and  Hugh Prestwood  for 'The Song Remembers When'.

That's really why I'm standing on this carpet. So this is a huge honor for me."

Everyone in the audience was moved by both Yearwood's speech and the amazing honorary performances.

I was standing at the counter
I was waiting for the change
When I heard that old familiar music start
It was like a lighted match had been tossed into my soul
It was like a dam had broken in my heart
After taking every detour
Gettin' lost and losin' track
So that even if I wanted I could not find my way back
After driving out the memory
Of the way things might have been
After I'd forgotten all about us
The song remembers when

We were rolling through the Rocky's
We were up above the clouds
When a station out of Jackson played that song
And it seemed to fit the moment
And the moment seemed to freeze
When we turned the music up and sang along
And there was a God in Heaven
And the world made perfect sense
We were young and were in love
And we were easy to convince
We were headed straight for Eden
It was just around the bend
And though I have forgotten all about it
The song remembers when

I guess something must have happened
And we must have said goodbye
And my heart must have been broken
Though I can't recall just why
The song remembers when

Well, for all the miles between us
And for all the time that's past
You would think I haven't gotten very far
And I hope my hasty heart
Will forgive me just this once
If I stop to wonder how on earth you are

But that's just a lot of water
Underneath a bridge I burned
And there's no use in backtracking
Around corners I have turned
Still I guess some things we buried
Are just bound to rise again
For even if the whole world has forgotten
The song remembers when

Yeah, and even if the whole world has forgotten
The song remembers when
