Brandi Carlile and Tanya Tucker speak onstage during the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards at Staples Center on Jan. 26, 2020 in Los Angeles. 

Brandi Carlile and Tanya Tucker wooed the 2020 Grammys audience on Sunday night (Jan. 26), all thanks to their "Bring My Flowers" duet.

Looking every inch of the country icon she is with a classic fringed suit and pink-tipped hair, Tucker’s emotive vocals commanded the audience’s full attention with every quaking syllable: "Bring my flowers now, while I’m livin’/I won’t need your love when I’m gone." 

Carlile, sporting a white blazer and bolero tie, anchored the performance with her delicate piano notes as she looked on to Tucker with admiration before joining her to harmonize on the chorus.   

"Bring My Flowers," the closing track on Tucker's comeback album While I’m Livin', already took home the Grammy for best country song and the LP won best country album.

"I’m particularly proud of [these nominations]," Carlile told Billboard about this year's Grammy honors back in November. "I think that they’re profound and revolutionary in a lot of ways -- for Tanya’s age, the fact that we’re women, that she’s chosen to be represented by an LGBTQ person and the fact that we have a song that is written from a place of such honesty that it’s practically a musical autobiography."
