Looks like Taylor Swift isn’t the only country act who likes to bring surprise guests onstage.

Brad Paisley surprised his crowd this past weekend (Jan. 25) by bringing Rascal Flatts up.

New combo Rascal Brad first did a cover of Merle Haggard’s “I Think I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink,” and video shows that Jay DeMarcus—and not Gary LeVox—did the lead vocals for that performance.

But then Gary stepped front and center to do a Rascal Brad version of the Flatts’ 2005 No. 1 hit “Fast Cars and Freedom.”

Brad couldn’t let the trio leave without a joke or two.

“I don’t know what you were doing tonight that you had nothing to do. Your booking agent’s not very good, is he?” Brad quipped.

After the first song, Gary pointed at the headliner and shouted, “Brad Paisley!”

“Yeah, they know,” Brad said, drawing a laugh from the crowd.
