Remember When George Strait, Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett Covered 'Hey Good Lookin''?

Jimmy Buffett, Alan Jackson, Clint Black, Kenny Chesney, Toby Keith and George Strait all joined together on the stage to sing the Hank Williams song, "Hey Good Lookin'" and it's a performance everyone who calls themselves a fan of country music needs to see ASAP. 

Buffett recorded his own rendition of the song in 2004 for his album License to Chill (gonna throw this out there but that's the most Jimmy Buffett album title ever). Jackson, Strait, Keith, Chesney and Black were all featured on the "It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere" singer's track, which led to this iconic group performance at the CMA Awards.

The studio version of Buffett and Co.'s "Hey Good Lookin'" hit No. 8 on the Billboard Hot Country chart in 2004.

By all accounts, this impromptu supergroup did the iconic country music song proud. But then again when you get this group together there's no way you're getting anything but a classic performance. 

"Hey Good Lookin'" was written and recorded by Williams in 1951. The song has been covered by multiple artists throughout the years, including Ernest Tubb, George Jones, Ray Charles, Leon Russell and more.

"Hey Good Lookin'" Lyrics:

Say, hey, good lookin'

Whatcha got cookin'?

How's about cookin' somethin' up with me?

Hey, sweet baby 

Don't you think maybe

We could find us a brand new recipe?

I got a hot-rod Ford and a two-dollar bill

And I know a spot right over the hill 

There's soda pop and the dancin's free

So if you wanna have fun come along with me

Say, hey, good lookin'

Whatcha got cookin'?

How's about cookin' somethin' up with me?

I'm free and ready

So we can go steady

How's about savin' all your time for me?

No more lookin'

I know I've been tooken 

How's about keepin' steady company?

I'm gonna throw my date book over the fence

And buy me one for five or ten cents

I'll keep it till it's covered with age

Cause I'm writin' your name down on every page

Say hey, good lookin' - what ya got cookin'?

How's about cooking somethin' up with me?
