Looks like we finally know who that one Luke Bryan song was written for.

The opening musical number at Wednesday night’s CMT Music Awards was a jam-packed jamboree that included appearances of everyone from ZZ Top to Florida Georgia Line to Bryan himself, but the performance was catapulted – literally – to another level when an unlikely artist vaulted onto the stage: R&B star Jason Derulo, who showed up to sing his recent hit “Talk Dirty.”

Though Derulo isn’t a cowboy-hat-and-belt-buckle artist by any means, all the Nashville dudes on stage delighted in singing along. Florida Georgia Line even went so far as to switch up the song’s lyrics to make them more country-appropriate.

Sadly, as far as we could tell, Derulo never said his own name.

Before Derulo’s appearance, ZZ Top performed “La Grange,” while Florida Georgia Line and Bryan played their collaboration, “This Is How We Roll.”
