It’s a convergence of epic proportions.
We’ve been waiting for this for what seems like forever! It’s actually just been a couple of weeks since country’s hottest stars have been teasing the all-star country music collaboration that is “Forever Country.” We’ve been hearing the song since Sept. 16, but on Sept. 20, after “Dancing With the Stars,” we saw the video premiere!
Produced by hit Nashville songwriter Shane McAnally and directed by Joseph Kahn to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the CMA Awards, the songs “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” “I Will Always Love You” and “On the Road Again” provide the layers of the musical mash-up, but the 40 singers providing their stellar vocals are the icing on the cake.
It’s one thing to hear it, but to see the magic happen is positively goose bump inducing, and we can’t speak for everyone, but watching Randy Travis take part in this once-in-a-lifetime event may have been the absolute best part.
Did you catch everyone who made an appearance and lent their voices to this magical event? If not, here’s the roll call: Trisha Yearwood, Dierks Bentley, Reba, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Randy Travis, Rascal Flatts, Alan Jackson, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Darius Rucker, Alabama, Lady Antebellum, Dolly Parton, Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood, Willie Nelson, Luke Bryan, Charley Pride, Kacey Musgraves, Eric Church, Little Big Town, Ronnie Milsap, Vince Gill, Jason Aldean, Martina McBride, Brett Eldredge, George Strait, Miranda Lambert, and Brooks & Dunn.
