Video: Blake Shelton Duets With Shakira at 2014 ACM Awards
Blake Shelton was among country music's big names who took the stage at the 2014 Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday night, April 6. The singer teamed up with fellow "The Voice" coach Shakira to give the first live performance of their collaboration, "Medicine".
Looking hot in a red strapless dress and thigh-high boots, the Latin singer channeled her inner country star as Shelton accompanied her on the stage. The two stars flashed big smiles and shared a big hug after they finished the song.
That night, Shelton's wife Miranda Lambert also served as a performer at the annual event. The songstress, who won the Record of the Year award for her "Mama's Broken Heart" minutes earlier, appeared on the stage in a simple white tank top and a pair of jeans when singing "Automatic", the first single off her upcoming album "Platinum".
George Strait gave a brilliant performance as well. After being introduced by Martina McBride, the veteran musician sang his hit called "I Got a Car" and received a standing ovation after he completed his set.
Other performers included Jason Aldean ("Night Train"), Hunter Hayes ("Invisible"), Luke Bryan ("Play It Again") and Florida Georgia Line ("Stay"). The latter was also joined by Bryan to perform their collaboration, "This Is How We Roll".
Lambert and Strait then returned to the stage to perform a tribute to Merle Haggard, who received the Crystal Milestone Award that night. The duo sang Haggard's "I'm a Lonesome Fugitive".
