This year's CMA Awards was one for the history books and Eric Church's live performance of "Chattanooga Lucy" during the show was equally great.

North Carolina native Eric Church has earned the reputation of putting on one of the best live shows in the business, so it came as no surprise to fans when he nailed his “Chattanooga Lucy” performance at the 2017 CMA Awards. Of course it helped that the Chief was accompanied by Joanna Cotten’s gospel pipes and his backup singers. If this was not enough to make the performance spectacular on its own, Church was introduced by fellow country music star Brad Paisley!

“Chattanooga Lucy” Lyrics

Two miles east of the Chickamauga
Just over the hill and across the holla
End of the path leading from the water
There’s a one-room, A-frame house
Hot-pie, potbelly stove
When she workin’ the flame, it never get cold
The only place on Earth I know
It gets hotter when the sun goes down

Oh my, my Chattanooga Lucy
Woman, what it is you do to me
Forbidden fruit, it sure is juicy
You got me comin’ around, comin’ around
Oh my, my Chattanooga Lucy
Break me easy or bend me bluesy
Hold on tight or hold on loosely
Keep me comin’ around, comin’ around

Post my bail and pay my bounty
Anything to get me down to Hamilton County
Up and down and all around me
Every time I hear the sound
Every time I hear the sound

Oh my, my Chattanooga Lucy
Woman, what it is you do to me
Forbidden fruit, it sure is juicy
You got me comin’ around, comin’ around
Oh my, my Chattanooga Lucy
Break me easy or bend me bluesy
Hold on tight or hold on loosely
Keep me comin’ around, comin’ around

Yeah, I come undone
Every time I get some
Kickdrum, guitar strum
No matter where you come from

Oh my, my Chattanooga Lucy
Woman, what it is you do to me
Forbidden fruit, it sure is juicy
You got me comin’ around, comin’ around
Yeah, oh my, my Chattanooga Lucy
Break me easy or bend me bluesy
Hold on tight or hold on loosely
Keep me comin’ around, comin’ around
Keep me comin’ around, comin’ around

Yeah, I come undone
Every time I get some
Kickdrum, guitar strum
She’s everything but a shy one
