Dierks Bentley and Ingrid Andress joined forces for a performance of a country classic during New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash on Friday (Dec. 31).

Live from the Bicentennial Mall stage in Downtown Nashville, the country superstar and fast-rising singer teamed up to perform John Denver’s most popular tune, “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”

“Y’all know this song, Let’s go!” Andress said as they kicked off their performance together.

Bentley and Andress then performed a unique rendition of the song, which prompted a massive sing-along with the 100,000+ fans in attendance.
