On a night dedicated to country, even those of the non-cowboy hat persuasion received a down-home, sweeter-than-sweet tea welcome from Nashville's finest.
Both soul king Stevie Wonder and pop's resident heart-breaker John Mayer
took the Academy of Country Music Awards
stage Sunday night as Las Vegas enjoyed a taste of the South.
A recently single
Mayer joined Brad Paisley
to sing the country crooner's "Beat This Summer" in one of Mayer's first live performances
since he battled two bouts of vocal cord problems
Wonder later rocked the ACM stage with nominee Hunter Hayes for a jazzy mashup of their songs "I Want Crazy" and "Sir Duke."
Wonder also returned to the stage to close the show with a little help from co-hosts Blake Shelton
and freshly minted entertainer of the year Luke Bryan, rocking through "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours."
