Thomas Rhett had quite the introduction before his big performance of his hit 'It Goes Like This' at the 2013 American Country Awards. Parmalee, who just so happen to have a record out Tuesday (Dec. 10), sang 'Feels Like Carolina' acoustically as they introduced New Artist Nominee Rhett.

The 'newcomer,' who posted how nervous he was about the performance on social media earlier in the day, looked enthusiastic and energetic as he played the acoustic guitar for his song.

Rhett looked the part in his signature backwards ball cap, a brown leather jacket and a v-neck at the 2013 ACAs. The crowd sang the lyrics along with him, and they never stopped dancing.

It wasn't long before his energy got the best of him. The 'Get Me Some of That' singer removed his guitar and got a little closer to his fans. They all wanted to shake hands with the young singer, who sported a healthy looking beard during the performance.

When his song ended, he screamed "thank you!" as the crowd screamed even louder for a song they obviously all knew.
