Global superstars Jason Aldean and Carrie Underwood gave a show-stopping performance of their multi-week No. 1 hit during the 2021 American Music Awards.

On Sunday, Nov. 21, the country superstars joined forces once again to perform “If I Didn’t Love You” at the AMAs, marking their second time performing the tune on national television. 

Appearing from Downtown Nashville outside of the Bridge Building near the pedestrian bridge, the superstars flawlessly delivered a performance of the heartbreak song against the Music City skyline.

Their performance followed the live debut of the duet, which took place during the 2021 CMA Awards on Wednesday evening (Nov. 10). 

Aldean and Underwood’s performance, which was part of the AMAs new ‘My Hometown’ segment, found the hitmakers looking back on their humble beginnings, with Aldean reminiscing on growing up in Macon, Georgia and Underwood opening up about her childhood in Checotah, Oklahoma.

“If I Didn’t Love You” was co-written by Aldean’s bandmates Kurt Allison and Tully Kennedy alongside John Morgan and Lydia Vaughan. It was produced by the superstar’s longtime collaborator Michael Knox.

The emotional track, which is the singer’s current single at country radio, finds Aldean and Underwood crooning over an ex, admitting that moving on has not been easy. The track opens with Aldean’s signature vocals. Underwood joins him on the chorus as they admit to experiencing heartache following a breakup.

The multi-week chart-topper became Aldean’s 26th No.1 hit and serves as the lead single of his just-released 10th studio album, Macon, Georgia.
