The “Fire Away” singer will perform alongside Emmylou Harris during this weekend’s televised ceremony. So far, the Grammys have not announced what song or songs Chris Stapleton and Emmylou Harris will be performing.
The announcement follows the Grammy tradition of pairing up burgeoning musicians with established artists for special one-night-only duets. Stapleton is nominated for three Grammy Awards this year, while Harris has won 13 Grammys over her career that spans over four decades.
This year, the Grammy Awards will also take a moment to honor those who were affected by the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting in Las Vegas. Eric Church, Brothers Osborne and Maren Morris, three artists who performed at the festival, will perform a musical tribute to the 58 country fans who were murdered on Oct. 1, during the event’s final night.
The 2018 Grammy Awards will be held at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on Jan. 28. Stay tuned to Wide Open Country for continuing coverage on the awards. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get news from the awards as they happen this Sunday.
