The recently held 59th Academy of Country Music Awards didn't just bring about great country artists, but for the fans of pop, it even had a big surprise.

The event that was held on Thursday, May 16, recognized a number of musicians and singers, with several grand performances delivered by great artists. One of these unforgettable acts, was by Chris Stapleton. 

While it was obvious to have an act delivered by the You Should Probably Leave artist at the award ceremony, the ones who were at the arena waiting for it, got a great surprise as they heard the voice of none other than the Levitating artist. 

A few sources from the Ford Theater at the Star in Frisco, Texas, also revealed that the country artist will soon be coming forth with his Dua Lipa collab, Billboard has reported. The surprising performance opened up as the Dance The Night artist sang Think I’m in Love With You, which is a song from Stapleton’s 2023 album called Higher.  

While this did give the ones sitting in the audience a great shock, the Broken Halos singer too entered the performance with his guitar. Together both these artists sang lyrics on stage at the ACM Awards, along with a disco-like slow jam.


The Don’t Start Now singer was seen grooving to the riffs of Stapleton, as she even sang the lyrics, “Perhaps we needed time to listen to our hearts.” She continued to sing, “And there you are. We’ve come so far together. You are the power over me. You are the light I wanna see.”
