In 2005, a CMT poll named Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers' duet of "Islands In The Stream" as the greatest country duet of all time.  

After its release in 1983, the song soared to the top of multiple Billboard charts, including the country and adult contemporary charts. It also claimed the top spot on the Billboard Top 100, making it the second pop crossover hit for both Parton and Rogers.

To this date, the song is a fan-favorite, and it just so happens that Luke Bryan is a big fan. During an appearance on the Bobby Bones radio show, Bryan was asked to sing the song along with Bones.

Feeling the pressure of being asked to sing such an iconic song, Bryan missed his cue the first time around. But the second time he came back in strong, singing Rogers' part while Bones sang Parton's.

It's clear that Bryan was having a good time, since he couldn't sit still and kept dancing around in his seat. He also couldn't stop laughing throughout the song, cracking up anytime he had to sing "We can ride it together, ah-ha/Making love with each other, ah-ha."

Despite that slight awkward moment, Bryan had a blast singing the song."This is awesome," he commented at one point in the middle of the duet.

We'd have to agree, it is pretty awesome! See for yourself in the video below.

LYRICS BELOW

Baby, when I met you
There was peace unknown
I set out to get you
With a fine tooth comb
I was soft inside
There was something going on

You do something to me
That I can't explain
Hold me closer and I feel no pain
Every beat of my heart
We got something going on
Tender love is blind
It requires a dedication
All this love we feel
Needs no conversation
We can ride it together, ah-ha
Making love with each other, ah-ha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ha
From one lover to another, ah-ha

I can't live without you
If the love was gone
Everything is nothing
If you got no one
And you did walk in the night
Slowly losing sight of the real thing

But that won't happen to us
And we got no doubt
Too deep in love and we got no way out
And the message is clear
This could be the year for the real thing

No more will you cry
Baby, I will hurt you never

We start and end as one
In love forever
We can ride it together, ah-ha
Making love with each other, ah-ha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ha
From one lover to another, ah-ha

Sail away

Ooooh, come sail away with me

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ha
From one lover to another, ah-ha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ha
From one lover to another, ah-ha
