“So this is the first time Noah & I have performed ‘This Is Us’ together and we are getting the chance to do it on the CMT Awards 2020 in the middle of a pandemic. It’s an interesting time, I was hoping that the first time we performed this together would be in front of an audience in person but you know with every situation life has a way throwing things at you and you just make the best. So we still get to perform in front of an audience they’ll just be miles away,” Allen said ahead of their debut performance.
“This Is Us” appears on Allen’s album, Bettie James, Cyrus co-wrote the song with Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard alongside Emile Dernst, Isley Juber and Jordan Schmidt.
