This year’s ACM Awards featured plenty of crossovers, including a powerful duet from Reba McEntire and Christian artist Lauren Daigle.
The sleek rendition was all about their vocals and the song’s lyrics, which offer words of hope through the power of faith. McEntire has been public about the personal connection she has with the song, and that was never more evident than on the ACM stage. Reba was moved to tears from the standing ovation and cheers that resinated from the crowd after her performance.
“Back to God” is the current single from McEntire’s most recent record, Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope. The album also features guest appearances from Kelly Clarkson and Trisha Yearwood. Recently, the project hit the top of both the country and Christian album charts.
To coincide with the awards, the pair are releasing a recorded version of the duet to all major online music retailers later this evening.
