We’d hate to be any act that had to follow a performance by The War and Treaty. Their exceptional harmonies were on display at the 2023 Country Music Association Awards during a powerful rendition of “That’s How Love Is Made.” The duo—the wedded Michael Trotter Jr. and Tanya Trotter—sing from somewhere deep within them. Every word they belt out oozes with soulful edge.
