Eric Church brought his cool energy to the 2014 CMT Music Awards, performing the appropriately-titled 'That's Damn Rock and Roll.'

With his customary shades in place, the singer coolly strode onto the stage as the intro played, slapping hands with some of the audience before he took his place in front of the mic. He delivered the lyric with a menacing, defiant strut that perfectly suited the song.

"It’s a rock through a window, it’s a ride in the street / It’s a rebel revolution, it’s fightin’ for peace / Burn baby burn, it’s a brick in the wall / It’s the first one to stand, and the last one to fall," he sang, joined by Lzzy Hale from Halestorm -- who turned in a scorching harmony vocal that brought the song to an even higher level.

The song appears on Church's current album, 'The Outsiders,' which sees him incorporating more rock influences into his already diverse audio palette.
