The duet “Hillbilly Bone,” with its catchy chorus and vibrant lyrics, showcases the duo’s strong musical chemistry and shared love for country music. The song, a hit from Shelton’s Hillbilly Bone EP, reached number one on the Billboard Country Charts in spring 2010. Its performance at the New Year’s event was a fitting tribute to its enduring popularity​​.

This mutual respect and camaraderie have been a cornerstone of their collaborative efforts over the years​​.

The New Year’s Eve event, apart from Shelton and Adkins’ performance, was a star-studded affair, featuring a lineup of renowned artists such as Thomas Rhett, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Lainey Wilson, and many others. It was not just a musical celebration but also a showcase of Nashville’s vibrant country music scene, bringing together fans and artists in a festive atmosphere to welcome the new year​​.
