Lady Antebellum and Zedd kicked off the CMT Music Awards on Wednesday night with some genre-blending flair.

The country trio and the electronic dance music producer took the stage together at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena for a mashup of Lady Antebellum’s “Long Stretch of Love” and Zedd’s current single “Beautiful Now.”

“It’s different for us for sure,” Charles Kelley said on the CMT Music Awards pre-show.

“We’re always game for whatever!” added Hillary Scott, calling the performance “like a rave.”

As for working with Zedd, Dave Haywood had only glowing words, giving Zedd credit for making the mash-up “work in a really cool way.”
