Hidden Gem: Charles Kelley and Rob Thomas Sing “Smooth”

Santana’s 1999 hit “Smooth” featuring Rob Thomas quickly canonized itself as an iconic pop song, and 17 years later it still sounds amazing. When the Matchbox Twenty singer and Charles Kelley took the stage earlier this year for a taping of CMT’s Crossroads, the duo were dynamic, with exceptional onstage chemistry and a beautiful vocal blend. From Kelley’s impeccable harmony to Thomas’ signature performance, the Lady Antebellum singer’s reaction at the end – dropping to the floor and exclaiming “Life made!” perfectly captures the moment. We’re hitting replay and praying for a recorded duet one day.
