Remember when Kid Rock gently rocked the CMA Fest stage with this country legend? YouTube

Kid Rock had always been known as a rocker with a country side that seemed to attract a far-reaching audience. Yet, when the Detroit music mainstay released his song “Picture” in 2002, it was that same audience that seemed to fall even deeper in love with his soft side.

Through the years, Kid Rock has performed the song with a bevy of country beauties such as Kellie Pickler, Miranda Lambert, Jessie James, Sheryl Crow, Gretchen Wilson, LeAnn Rimes and Allison Moorer.

Yet, it’s the version he did with the fabulous Martina McBride at CMA Fest in 2009 that fans still pull up and watch on YouTube. In fact, it’s one of the highest-viewed CMA Fest videos on YouTube, and for good reason. The two sounded amazing together and seemed to have much respect toward one another, with Kid Rock describing Martina as a woman with class, beauty and talent.

And all together, we swooned.

And as they hit that last note and their harmonies blended together almost effortlessly, they took each other by the hand and knew in their hearts that they had put on the performance of a lifetime.
