Sunday’s 54th annual American of Country Music Awards featured a wide range of performers and show-stopping performances, but the duo between country legend George Strait and country’s sweetheart Miranda Lambert truly set the room on fire. Taking to the stage to perform Strait’s 2003 mega-hit “Run,” Lambert and Strait belted their way through the iconic song and got the audience moving.

During the number, Strait wore his signature cowboy hat and a suit jacket, while Lambert was dressed in red dress with fringes. After finishing the song, Lambert pointed to her duet partner and shouted, “that’s the King, y’all!”


Both singers also performed at other times throughout the night. Later in the show, Lambert led a medley of hits, while Strait closed the program with his new song, “Every Little Honky Tonk Bar.”

While neither singers took home any awards, they definitely rocked the stage. Meanwhile, the night saw Keith Urban and newcomers Dan + Shay take home the biggest honors, while Kacey Musgraves and Thomas Rhett each won for female and male artist of the year, respectively.
