" for his 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2
. He later performed the song as a duet alongside Stapleton at the 2015 Country Music Awards. Shortly after his CMAs moment with the Nashville singer-songwriter, Timberlake released "Drink You Away" to country radio, and the tune picked up sufficient plays to peak at #60 on the Billboard Country airplay chart.
In September 2017 Timberlake and Stapleton shared the stage, along with Stapleton's wife Morgane, during the pop star's set at the Pilgrimage Music and Cultural Festival in Tennessee.
