Eric Church displayed rock and awe at the 2013 CMA Awards Broadcast using pyrotechnics and heavy guitar riffs as he performed his rock leaning song 'The Outsiders'.  Eric had a hunch before the show the reaction would be positive, but wasn't sure until after his performance when he received a standing ovation.

The Zac Brown Band also leaned to the rock side inviting Dave Grohl of Nirvana and Foo Fighters fame.  Dave picked up the sticks and jumped behind the kit (drums) on the new song 'Day For The Dead'.  Check out the videos below.
