Nothing screams the Fourth of July like some fireworks and a Nashville hoedown – and that’s exactly how Tom Cruise spent the holiday.

The actor, 53, took a break from his busy schedule filming Mena to jet down to Nashville to celebrate his July 3rd birthday and the long weekend.

The Mission: Impossible star was spotted at the Acme Feed & Seed bar late Saturday night.

“He was on the rooftop watching the fireworks until it started raining,” a source told PEOPLE. “Then he went down to the main event floor and hung out for the rest of the night.”

Cruise, who was with a small group of friends and family, wasted no time getting friendly with the locals. He was seen snapping pictures and dancing around the bar.

“He was very people-friendly and didn’t seem stressed at all,” said the source. “He was having a great time.”

Fans took to Twitter and Instagram to share their excitement about meeting the movie star.

“No Way! @TomCruise! In #Nashville!!!” wrote one fan.

Cruise’s next Mission: Impossible installment, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation is out July 31.
