Josh Groban And Jennifer Nettles Sing '99 Years' Duet

Josh Groban and Jennifer Nettles perform a beautiful duet of ’99 Years.’


This powerful ballad takes a look at the incredible love story between a man and woman.

“Will we look back down on 99 years of a wonderful life?
Where we laughed till we cried and
our love grew stronger with every fight
There'll be a thousand moments for you to say "I told you"
And a million more for us to say "I love you"
So let's look forward to you and I looking back
At 99 years like that, at 99 years like that”

Josh Groban is known worldwide for his boisterous voice and uplifting songs. Recently, he shared the story behind this touching tune.

“It’s one of those songs about the uncertainty of what’s ahead.” Josh shared. And after he finished writing the song, he realized that it should be performed as a duet. After wondering who would be perfect to sing alongside him, he decided on Jennifer Nettles because of the song’s ‘accidental’ country sound.

Josh’s parents and their 50-year-marriage was a huge inspiration for the lyrics.

“My parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. I think many people in my generation and younger wonder, “what are they thinking about, the future-future?” He remarked that it’s more common for his generation to take it one day at a time.

This live performance of ’99 Years’ is from a recent concert at Madison Square Garden. As Josh Groban and Jennifer Nettles belt out these incredible words, you can truly feel the weight of emotions.

I have a feeling this is going to be another Josh Groban song that stands the test of time.
