Justin Timberlake & Chris Stapleton Duet on 'Tennessee Whiskey,' 'Drink You Away' at CMAs

Memphis-born pop superstar Justin Timberlake joined the stage at the 2015 CMAs to duet with uber-talented (and heavily-bearded) country newcomer Chris Stapleton.

Shortly after Stapleton won New Artist of the Year at the CMAs, he hit the stage with a guitar-slinging Timberlake to trade vocals on the Traveller track "Tennessee Whiskey."

After that, JT performed his most honky tonk track to date, "Drink You Away" from The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2, with Stapleton adding some serious vocal assists.

Sure, Timberlake is pop, but there's nothing more country than two Tennessee boys singing about booze with guitars in hand.
