Luke Combs Joins Brooks & Dunn For “Brand New Man” At 2019 ACMs
When both Luke Combs and Brooks & Dunn were announced as performers for the 54th Annual ACM Awards in 2019, we were excited. But when it was revealed they’d be performing together, everything changed.
The ACMs announced a slew of epic duets including Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson, Dierks Bentley and Brandi Carlile, Erich Church and Ashley McBryde, Dan + Shay and Kelly Clarkson, and that’s not even half of them!
Not only were these incredible collaborations announced, the ACM revealed they would be bringing back the fan-favorite segment ACM Flashbacks! At the 2018 show, Kelly Clarkson joined host Reba McEntire for a duet to the latter’s classic song “Does He Love You.” McEntire even slipped back into the infamous red dress from the 90s!
For 2019’s ACM Flashbacks, Brooks & Dunn teamed up with Luke Combs and George Strait sang a duet with Miranda Lambert. The pairing of Combs and Brooks & Dunn made complete sense, since the “Beautiful Crazy” singer joined the duo on their album Reboot.
On the album – and now on the stage – the trio of country singers sang the 1991 hit song “Brand New Man.” From the very first guitar strum, they had the ACM Awards audience on their feet and only a few words in, everyone was singing along. We felt like we were transported back to the 90s with this one – in a good way!
Combs performed earlier in the night and traded in his suit for his trademark fishing shirt and red solo cup!
There’s a good reason why people have called it the best performance of the night! Watch it below.
