The 2015 Country Music Awards producers have been teasing fans about a mystery guest making an appearance on “country music’s biggest night.”
The award show, full of country music’s top entertainers, promises to deliver a knockout show, full of amazing performances. Producers teased fans via Twitter with a mystery guest that would be performing with Chris Stapleton.
The announcement came on Monday’s segment of Good Morning America. It was revealed that singer and actor Justin Timberlake will be joining Stapleton on stage for a collaboration.
Reactions to the announcement were mixed. Both Timberlake and Stapleton shared their excitement to share the stage, Timberlake stating, “Honored to share the stage with this BADASS. Wed night. Memphis x Nashville. @ChrisStapleton #CMAawards.” Stapleton responded, “The feeling couldn’t be more mutual #nashvilletnkids.”
Although the two artists are stoked about their collaboration, some country music fans aren’t so thrilled. One fan states, “I don’t have anything against artists in other genres, but this is a COUNTRY music awards show. Let’s keep it country, shall we?”
The CMA’s will air on Nov. 4 on ABC at 8/7c.
