No one was ready for their insane duet of Stapleton's "Tennessee Whiskey" and Timberlake's "Drink You Away". They had the entire audience, and everyone at home, on their feet, singing along to what have been dubbed "the best performance ever".
From that performance alone, it's no wonder that a seemingly unknown Stapleton swept every award he was nominated for including Male Vocalist of the Year!
Since then, fans have been dying for Timberlake to release a country song. He did release the song he performed at the CMAs, "Drink You Away", as a single to country radio, but now we may be getting our wish.
Timberlake has been posting Instagram photos in the studio lately. The other day, he shared a photo of himself and longtime friend, producer, and Voice coach, Pharrell, with the captions, "Currently..."
Late Sunday night, he shared another photo, this time with a superstar country group!
"NBD...Just writing with Little Big Town," he writes. "This band is the truth!! So good!!!!"
Little Big Town, who have just come off a spectacular awards season, which includes a Grammy win for Best Country Duo/Group Performance, shared Timberlake's excitement about their songwriting session.
We wonder if their collaboration will turn into a Little Big Town song, or a Timberlake song, or if they will record music together! No matter what, we're sure it will be incredible!!
Take a look at Timberlake's EPIC performance with Stapleton below.
