When two music superstars team up for a duet, the results are sometimes better on paper than in execution. But when they work, oh man do they work.
Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban‘s performance of “We Were Us” at the 2013 CMA Awards Wednesday night (Nov. 6) happily fell into the latter category. The song has deservedly been a hit on country radio, but their live version pretty well blew the audience at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena away.
Their performance was rawer than the slickly produced studio version of the song, and it really channeled the regret present in the lyrics. Their performance came in the first hour of the show, but it will be hard for any of the other artists performing at the awards to top.
What did you think of Lambert and Urban’s performance?
