We can’t imagine the kind of emotions the Charles Kelley, Jason Aldean, and Darius Rucker had when they opened the 2017 CMT Music Awards with a moving tribute to the late Gregg Allman.

Standing under a spotlight while sharing a microphone, the three country superstars harmonized the beginning of Allman’s iconic song “Midnight Rider.” They turned it up a notch by bringing out a member of the Allman Brothers Band, Derek Trucks, who shredded on the guitar.
