(NBC News) - A new music video has something sure to please any country fan, because it features virtually every country artist!
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the CMA Awards, 30 acts from the genre have joined forces for the ultimate mashup — "Forever Country."
The song layers past country music hits — including John Denver's "Take Me Home, Country Roads," Willie Nelson's "On the Road Again" and Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" — to create an all fresh single with a line for everyone.
And we really mean everyone.
The video opens with Brad Paisley gazing out a window as he sings the song's opening lyrics and closes with Parton serenading us from a field. In between, an impressive assortment of hit-makers can be seen crooning, walking and looking out across familiar — and digitally imposed — landscapes.
The song is simply credited to "Artists of Then, Now & Forever," but we've got the full list of the acts featured in this epic clip: Alabama, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Brooks & Dunn, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Brett Eldredge, Vince Gill, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Tim McGraw, Ronnie Milsap, Kacey Musgraves, Willie Nelson, Brad Paisley, Dolly Parton, Charley Pride, Rascal Flatts, Reba, Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton, George Strait, Randy Travis, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Trisha Yearwood.
See more from many of those artists when the 2016 CMA Awards airs Nov. 2.
