While all of the performances were stellar, there was one that everyone could not stop talking about, and that was Tracy Chapman joining Luke Combs on stage to sing her hit song "Fast Car."

This was the first time Tracy has performed "Fast Car" live in nine years, and she notably performed the song at the Grammys in 1989 when she took home the award for Best New Artist.

This year, Luke Combs received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Country Solo Performance for his cover of "Fast Car." Luke's rendition of the iconic song even earned Tracy a Country Music Award for Song of the Year, making her the first Black songwriter to win the award.

Luke has consistently put Tracy's incredible artistry front and center while celebrating the success of his "Fast Car" cover. After Tracy said she was "honored" to have a No. 1 on the Billboard country chart, Luke added, "The success of my cover is unreal and I think it’s so cool that Tracy is getting recognized and has reached new milestones."
