It seems like Jason Aldean released this duet forever ago, but it's just now becoming eligible for major awards. It earned the Musical Event of the Year award at the 2011 CMA Awards, but lost to the Band Perry's 'If I Die Young' in the Single of the Year category.

This song will win if: ACM voters don't object to giving Kelly Clarkson an ACM award. The pop singer has been a friend to country long enough that unlike some singers (ahem, Jessica Simpson), there isn't a visceral gag reflex when she appears on the country stage. For the most part, fans have embraced her.
