It was a sweep for “Don’t You Wanna Stay” at the 47th Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday night.
The pair took the stage to accept the award along with producer, Michael Knox. Aldean graciously thanked the writers for creating a great song. He continued his speech by adding that he wanted a female vocal on the record and the first person that came to his mind was Clarkson. He then told the crowd, that she took the song to a new place.
Clarkson, looking gorgeous in red, thanked Jason and their managers and then sweetly thanked everyone for welcoming her from the pop world. Country music loves you, Kelly! You are welcomed with open arms.
The pair also picked up ‘Vocal Event of the Year’ prior to the ACM Awards’ live broadcast.
“Don’t You Wanna Stay” appears on Aldean’s album, My Kinda Party, as well as on Clarkson’s deluxe edition of her Stronger album.
