There’s all sorts of music you hear throughout your life that stays with you. From the song you listened to in the backseat of your parents’ car, to the song that was playing when you danced at your prom, to the song that was playing when you walked down the aisle, music has a way of telling your story like nothing else can.

But when an old piece of music gets a makeover, that feeling just gets stronger.

Take, for example, Rascal Flatts’ re-do of the Earth, Wind & Fire classic “After the Love Has Gone.” Not only does Rascal Flatts get to join their heavenly voices with the R&B crooners, but lead singer Gary LeVox’ voice soars on the notes that make that song such a classic.

The performance is from the “CMT Crossroads: Earth, Wind & Fire and Friends” concert, which premiered on CMT June 23. Country artists including Lady Antebellum, Darius Rucker, Martina McBride, Dan+ Shay and Sara Evans all got to show off their dynamic vocals for the crowd that assembled to see the once in a lifetime performances right in downtown Nashville.

“Still can’t believe we got to sing ‘After the Love Has Gone’ with Earth, Wind & Fire,” Rascal Flatts wrote on their socials recently, along with a link to video of the performance.
