It's hard to beat a live Keith Urban performance. But when the Australian-born country star joins forces with Zac Brown Band, he can't be beat. Tonight (Nov. 1), Urban and ZBB teamed up sing Urban's 'Georgia Woods' and blow some minds at the 2012 CMA Awards.

Urban has been saying for a while now that he's been working on some new tunes -- and that they're going to sound unlike anything we've ever heard from him before. Tonight definitely proved his point.

With a simple backdrop projection of birds flying, Urban took the stage in jeans and a T-shirt and jammed out on the guitar with Zac Brown. The guitar-heavy performance was a strong reminder that the 'Over You' hitmaker is just as talented a musician as he is a singer and songwriter. Both Urban and Zac Brown shared in the song's vocals, and they both had a chance to pick up the axe and show what they can do.

The 'Georgia Woods' lyrics are definitely country -- after all, what's more country than a song about finding peace outside in the trees? But since the song is more ambient and instrument-heavy than Urban's previous hits, he and ZBB provided a break from the more twangy performances at the CMA Awards.
