All the At-Home Collaborations from ACM PRESENTS: OUR COUNTRY

How the Stars Stayed Social Distant During Their Duets

We were supposed to be watching this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday night (April 5) in Las Vegas. But instead, we’re watching from our homes and the artists are performing from theirs.

Even when they’re collaborating.

So during the the ACM PRESENTS: OUR COUNTRY special that aired in place of the awards — postponed until September because of the coronavirus pandemic — artists found ways to come together safely to bring country fans a little bit of light in a truly dark time.

“Nobody But You”

In a tribute to the late Kenny Rogers, Brad Paisley was at home in Nashville and connected with Darius Rucker in Charleston for “Lucille” and “The Gambler.” And Luke Bryan closed the show with Roger’s 1979 hit, “Coward Of The County.”
