Darius Rucker Brought Out Karen Fairchild to Sing “What If I Told You” During #CMAFest and It Was Amazing


The final night of CMA Music Festival usually features old friends Brad Paisley, Keith Urban and Darius Rucker. At one point during the evening it is expected that one of them would join another act on stage for some sort of guitar playing craziness from Brad or Keith, but this year, it was Darius pulling out the biggest surprise of the evening by bringing Karen Fairchild on stage.

Karen joined Darius during his smash hit, “If I Told You,” which always seemed like it’d make a good duet. And on this evening, it made a lot of sense to bring Karen out to join him on it. The two sounded like they’d been singing together for decades.

The song is Darius’ seventh No. 1 single as country music singer.
