Bon Jovi star Richie Sambora added some rock ‘n’ roll to the 2014 CMA Music Fest by performing with the Zac Brown Band on Sunday night.

The group headlined the final night of the country music event at the LP Field stadium in Nashville, Tennessee, following performances from the genre’s biggest stars, including Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum and Brad Paisley, across the four-day festival.

Zac Brown’s group gave the audience a night to remember by bringing out special guest Sambora during the set to perform Bon Jovi’s huge hit “Wanted Dead Or Alive.”

The guitarist said after the show, “What a blast playing with my brother Zac Brown. Nashville has always welcomed me with open arms, and it was incredible to jump on stage and feel the energy of that amazing crowd.”
