Watch Timberlake and Stapleton sing George Jones’ “Tennessee Whiskey” and Timberlake’s “Drink You Away.”


Justin Timberlake joined Chris Stapleton on stage at Wednesday’s CMA’s to sing the George Jones classic “Tennessee Whiskey” and Timberlake’s “Drink You Away” off the 20/20 Experience.

Timberlake was easily one of the most anticipated performances of the night, and he delivered. The Memphis-born singer sang alongside Artist of the Year winner Chris Stapleton.

JT, who recently gave an outstanding performance and prepared speech at his Memphis Hall of Fame Induction, blew the crowd away with his smooth falsetto during the song that appeared on Stapleton’s Traveller (which also won Album of the Year).

Stapleton told Rolling Stone Country teaming up with Timberlake might turn some heads, but it’s all about the music, saying “some people might want to burn me at the stake for it, or burn him at the stake for it. Who knows? But we’re going to have a good time.”

That they do. Watch below:
