The musicians wowed with their vocals at the annual awards show.
Mickey Guyton and Black Pumas just delivered an incredible performance. During Monday night's CMT Music Awards, the country singer and the psychedelic soul duo teamed up for a world premiere collaboration.
During the show, Guyton, Eric Burton, and Adrian Quesada wowed the crowd with a performance of Black Pumas 2019 track, "Colors."
Ahead of the performance, Quesada told ET's Rachel Smith that, when he and Burton first rehearsed the track with Guyton, "It was combination goosebumps and combination, 'Hasn't she been in this band for five years?'"
"It just felt very natural," Guyton agreed. "I'm just glad to be a part of the party."
Ahead of their time on stage, Burton told CMT about how ecstatic he was to team up with Guyton, whom he called "absolutely brilliant, beautiful."
"We might have gotten put together for the music and the content of the songs chosen to be presented therein. With the political climate, our management and CMT got together and decided the collaboration was something the public needed to hear," he said. "I’m honored to be a part of such an organization on such a stage to say such a message I think that Mickey and Black Pumas really stand for. That’s just unity and humanity for all people."
Guyton is nominated for three awards at this year's ceremony: Video of the Year for her track, "Remember Her Name;" Female Video of the Year for the same track; CMT Performance of the Year for her performance of "Friendship Train (from 2021 CMT Music Awards)" with Gladys Knight & BRELAND.
