In fact, Lady Antebellum spoke with ET on the red carpet before the show, and hinted that there are a few more cross-genre mashups on the horizon.

"It's a little bit of a preview," Lady Antebellum singer Hillary Scott said. "We've got a song coming out later this summer with another DJ his name is Audien."

"This is just our first kind of step into this world and who knows if we'll ever step back into it but it is sure fun to do something totally different than we've ever done before," Scott added.
