The current King of the CMA's, Chris Stapleton, joins Eric Church on stage in a small Montana town to perform The Band's 1968 hit "The Weight".

Both artists have been making headlines recently. Church just released an entire album following the CMA Awards...but not in the traditional way. He held off on releasing digital copies of the album and instead mailed physical copies to every member of his fan club!

Stapleton, on the other hand, just earned himself three CMA Awards with his debut album! No stranger to country music, Stapleton had spent nearly two decades writing songs for other artists, with many of them hitting high on the charts. 

When these two country powerhouses join forces, you know it's going to be good. Plus, their choice in song was top notch. Rolling Stone has called "The Weight" one of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time". 

Check out this amazing collaboration in the video below!

LYRICS BELOW

I pulled in to Nazareth, was feeling 'bout half past dead
I just need some place where I can lay my head
'Hey mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?''
He just grinned and shook my hand, 'No'' was all he said

Take a load off, Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off, Fanny
And you put the load right on me

I picked up my bag, I went looking for a place to hide
When I saw Carmen and the Devil walking side by side
I said 'Hey Carmen, come on, let's go downtown''
She said 'I gotta go but my friend can stick around''

Go down Miss Moses, there's nothing you can say
It's just old Luke, and Luke's waiting on the judgment day
'Well, Luke my friend, what about young Anna-Lee?''
He said 'Do me a favor son, won't you stay and keep Anna-Lee company?''

Crazy Chester followed me and he caught me in the fog
He said 'I will fix your rat if you'll take Jack my dog''
I said 'Wait a minute Chester, you know I'm a peaceful man''
He said 'That's okay boy, won't you feed him when you can?''

Catch a cannonball now to take me down the line
My bag is sinking low and I do believe it's time
To get back to Miss Fanny, you know she's the only one
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone
