Taking us back to the ‘80s era of country music, Jason crooned the group’s No. 1 song with his sexy, southern twang. His strums on an acoustic guitar also made for a delightful stripped-down version of the Tennessee anthem.

While Jason clearly made the song all his own, he may have gotten a bit of practice in before the show. In fact, back in 2012, the “Lights Come On” star covered the country classic numerous times with Luke Bryan during his My Kinda Party Tour.

“Dixieland Delight,” which was penned by Ronnie Rogers, was the lead-off single from Alabama’s seventh studio album, “The Closer You Get…”. It was also one of three hits from that record.
