Modern edge met classic style as Eric Church joined George Strait on stage at the 2014 CMA Awards to perform Strait’s hit ‘Cowboys Like Us’ from his 2003 album 'Honkytonkville.'

Strait’s voice was smooth and pitch-perfect as ever as he started off the song and Church strummed along next to him. The contrast of styles was endearing, as Strait donned his trademark cowboy hat and collared shirt, while Church wore aviators and a leather jacket.

Church took the second verse and looked genuinely excited to be there performing next to the legend. The two, though different kinds of cowboys, sang the song with enthusiasm and conviction, pulling off a crowd-pleasing performance at the CMAs.
