The 2017 CMT Awards was everything country music fans expected and more. Re-live the weekend with Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood's performance of "The Fighter" here!

If you’re still thinking about the epic performances that country music stars displayed during the CMT Awards this year, you are not alone. Although numerous artists took the stage such as Thomas Rhett, Miranda Lambert and Luke Bryan, nothing compared to when Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban played “The Fighter” under the bright lights.

Watch highlights of their stunning performance below.

The pair released “The Fighter” on February 6, 2017, and the song has gone on to have a tremendous amount of success. However, Urban did not write the song for the fame. In fact, he claims the lyrics suddenly came to him while thinking about his beautiful wife on his way to record a different single. “It was a very quick song to write because I literally just thought about Nic and I, and our relationship at the beginning and some of the things that we’d said,” the country entertainer told People. All relationships have their struggles, but luckily Keith and Nicole worked out their problems and have been married for over 11 years now.

Underwood and Urban have also released a music video to accompany the hit song. Check out the official music video below.

The Fighter Lyrics

I know he hurt you
Made you scared of love, too scared to love
He didn’t deserve you
Cause your precious heart is a precious heart

He didn’t know what he had and I thank God oh, oh, oh
And it’s gonna take just a little time
But you’re gonna see that I was born to love you

What if I fall?
I won’t let you fall
What if I cry?
I’ll never make you cry
And if I get scared?
I’ll hold you tighter
When they’re tryna get to you, baby, I’ll be the fighter
What if I fall?
I won’t let you fall
What if I cry?
I promise I’ll never make you cry
And if I get scared?
I’ll hold you tighter
When they’re tryna get to you, baby, I’ll be the fighter

Look in the mirror
You’re beautiful, so beautiful
I’m here to remind you
You’re my only one, let me be the one

To heal all the pain that he put you through
It’s a love like you never knew
Just let me show you

What if I fall?
I won’t let you fall
What if I cry?
I’ll never make you cry
And if I get scared?
I’ll hold you tighter
When they’re tryna get to you, baby, I’ll be the fighter
What if I fall?
I won’t let you fall
What if I cry?
I promise, I’ll never make you cry
And if I get scared?
I’ll hold you tighter
When they’re tryna get to you, baby, I’ll be the fighter

I wanna believe that you got me, baby
I swear I do from now until the next life
I wanna love, wanna give you all my heart

What if I fall?
I won’t let you fall
What if I cry?
I’ll never make you cry
And if I get scared?
I’ll hold you tighter
When they’re tryna get to you, baby, I’ll be the fighter
What if I fall?
I won’t let you fall
What if I cry?
I promise I’ll never make you cry
And if I get scared?
I’ll hold you tighter
When they’re tryna get to you, baby, I’ll be the fighter

What if I fall?
What if I cry?
And if I get scared?
I’ll hold you tighter
When they’re tryna get to you, baby, I’ll be the fighter
