Best Tribute: Kacey Musgraves and Lee Ann Womack Sing Alan Jackson

Does Alan Jackson really have 55 music videos? Apparently so, netting the Nineties country superstar the first-ever CMT Impact Award (essentially CMT’s answer to the VMAs' Video Vanguard Award).  To honor the singer, Kacey Musgraves and Lee Ann Womack dueted on a twangy, saloon-ready version of Jackson's 1994 Number One "Livin' on Love," that was more well-suited for a downtown Nashville honky-tonk than the caverns of Bridgestone Arena. It was the only remotely traditional-leaning, true country performance of the night, and with Musgraves and Womack — the former garbed in black, goth-Opry chic, and the latter in a rhinestone-bedazzled dress — trading lines and strumming away on acoustic guitars, it was a real showstopper. "That song never sounded better, y'all," Jackson told the pair during his acceptance speech.
