Every year country artists and their fans look forward to the night of the CMA Awards with excitement. For the last 51 years, the ceremony has highlighted the great talent in the country music world and this year it was no different.

Among all of the award excitement, there are always a handful of performers that bring life to the event. This year, two big names in the industry came together for a performance we’ll never forget.

The Artists: Dierks Bentley

Dierks made his name in country music in the early 2000s when his upbeat song, “What Was I Thinking” reached #1 on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. Since then, he has been going full-throttle creating music, getting married, having kids and creating his restaurant, Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row.

The Artists: Brothers Osborne

Even though they are a little newer to the block, Brothers Osborne have been keeping it country since day one. Their debut single, “Let’s Go There” reached Top 40 in 2013 and they didn’t stop there. They’ve continued creating music with their southern-rock sound. Amazon Music even called them the “Best Country of 2018 So Far.”

A Collaborative Song: Burning Man

So when the guys joined together for the track, “Burning Man” it was a match made in country music heaven. Dierks brought his twangy vocals to the tune while Brothers Osborne provided the electric guitars and rock-n-roll vibe that brings the edgy side of the song to life.
