Legends always give credit where credit is due.
So it was no surprise that downright gorgeous country legend Lee Ann Womack was anxious to give some worthy credit to her musical partner John Legend, who sang alongside her to their duet “You & I (Nobody in the World)” during a recent CMT Crossroads special.
“[John Legend] is wonderful,” Womack told Rare Country on the red carpet of the 2015 CMT Music Awards at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on June 10. “He is such a smart guy and he loves music. You know, I always say that there are people who make music from the outside in, but there are very few that make music from the inside out. John Legend is one of the best people I have ever gotten to work with.”
And while the incomparable Womack failed to come home from the award show with a trophy for her and Legend’s CMT Performance of the Year nomination for “You & I (Nobody in the World)” or her Female Video of the Year nomination for “The Way I’m Livin’,” she looked as content as ever in simply being there among her country peers for the star-studded event.
