Jackson and Womack reunited at the 2021 ACM Honors to recognize a country music legend…Loretta Lynn.

Lynn was named as one of the recipients of the ACM’s Poet’s Award, which:

“…is presented to a Country Music songwriter for outstanding and longstanding musical and/or lyrical contributions throughout their career, with special consideration given to a song or songs’ impact on the culture of Country Music.”

Although Lynn couldn’t attend the event in person, she did watch from home. That means she got the chance to watch Jackson and Womack sing one of her duets with Conway Twitty, “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man.”

The Story Behind “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man.”

Twitty and Lynn released “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man” in May 1973. Becki Bluefield
and Jim Owen wrote the track.

It reached the number one spot on the Hot Country Songs chart in the U.S. It also topped the country chart in Canada.

“Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man” only held on to the #1 spot for a week. But it remained on the Hot Country Songs chart for 13 weeks total.

Twitty and Lynn earned a Grammy nomination for Best Country Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group for their performance on the song.

Their ACM Honors performance wasn’t the first time Jackson and Womack lent their voices to the iconic duet. They previously covered the song during Lynn’s 87th birthday celebration in 2019.

The duo recaptured that same magic when they sang “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man” at the ACM Honors. Those who tuned in to the ceremony named their performance as one of the best of the night.
