Save for the Foo Fighters' honky tonk alter-ego outfit Hot Buns, Dave Grohl doesn't have a whole lot of country in his cache. But that changed tonight at the 47th annual CMA Awards, where the omnipresent drummer manned the skins for Zac Brown Band's new song "Day for the Dead."

Grohl pounded away to Brown's side at the front of the stage, where he powered the band through the bluesy, upbeat number which punctuated its pop tinge with a yearning slide-guitar lead. The song kicked in to high gear midway through, with a stoner-rock-worthy freak-out typical of Brown's country-jam antics that saw Grohl letting loose like he's known to do.
