In celebration of these milestones, Combs recently performed an acoustic version of the song during the 2019 ACM Awards live broadcast. Watch/share HERE. Of the performance, Billboard praises, “…a stirring version of the hit single…the arrangement breathed a second life into a song that many would have stated was perfect as is beforehand,” while Rolling Stone declares, “…Combs showed why he’s one of the genre’s most promising young voices .”
