Former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr just so happened to be playing Nashville's famous Ryman Auditorium—the one-time home of the Grand Ole Opry—on Saturday (July 7), the day he turned 72.

"You know, it's hard for me to believe—Ringo at the Ryman!" he exclaimed to the crowd, according to The Tennessean.

And Brad Paisley, Vince Gill and Kix Brooks just so happened to be at the show.

So when Ringo was getting ready to close out the two-hour "All-Starr Band" show, his country cousins joined him onstage for the 1967 Beatles classic "A Little Help From My Friends." Ringo also got a little more help from two pop/rock stars, Richard Marx and Joe Walsh.

Ringo made a couple of other country nods during the show. He performed a cover of Buck Owens' 1963 hit "Act Naturally," which was included on The Beatles' Help! album. And Ringo put on a black cowboy hat after a fan tossed it up onto the stage.
