What a trooper! John shocked the audience when he sang at the American Country Awards on April 7, and they loved it! Singing ‘Beat This Summer,’ this is the first time since John has performed following his throat surgery in August 2012. So great!
The 48th annual Academy of Country Music Awards on April 7 showcased many wonderful performances, including John Mayer‘s first live performance in over one year! John took to the stage in Las Vegas with Brad Paisley to sing “Beat This Summer,” and he gave a stellar performance considering he can barely sing!
John Mayer Performs xxx At The ACM Awards
John, 35, and Brad took to the stage to perform Brad’s new hit “Beat This Summer,” and they both rocked out with electric guitars! Brad did the majority of the vocal work, since John has been suffering from throat issues for over a year, caused by his love of whiskey!
John has suffered from voice issues throughout his career, and this time last year he was forced to cancel his Born & Raised tour, and he had surgery in August 2012. It’s clear that he back and better than ever now!
John Mayer Tells Ellen DeGeneres Why His Voice Was Ruined
Part was “over use and singing and singing and singing,” John told Ellen DeGeneres in May 2012.
And then there was “what you put into your body … it didn’t help that I really loved, loved, loved scotch. It’s just like applying poison to your body. It’s like applying a shellac of poison. It’s just delicious, wonderful poison … I had to really dial it down. And I’m a little more boring now.”
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Did you like Brad and John’s performance?
