Luke Combs Joins Brooks & Dunn For High-Energy ‘Brand New Man’ At ACMs
The ACMs announced a slew of epic duets and if you’ve been watching the show so far, everyone has delivered incredible performances! Some of the duets include 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 this year’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 he recently joined forces with the duo, who are the newest Country Music Hall of Fame inductees, for 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!
We don’t want to speak too soon, but this performance is in good contention to be the best of the night! Watch it below.
