Brad Paisley and Darius Rucker teamed up not once, but twice during the televised event. They closed out the show with a tribute to the late Kenny Rogers, but earlier in the night, they performed “Lucille” and “The Gambler.”

For the other duet, the two award-winning singers teamed up for a medley of Paisley’s song “Mud On The Tires” and Rucker’s tune “Wagon Wheel.”

Paisley kicked off the duet sitting in the back of his truck and sang “Mud On The Tires” almost in its entirety before he Facetimed Rucker, who then began singing “Wagon Wheel”! Paisley chimed in here and there with some harmonies that were literally music to our ears!

Check out the duet below.
