John Legend Debuts Country "All Of Me" With Hunter Hayes & Jennifer Nettles

John Legend's "All Of Me" can't quit the top slots on the Billboard charts, it played during Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's first dance, and now it's getting the Nashville treatment courtesy of a little country twang—and Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland and Hunter Hayes.

At the CMT Music Awards last night, Legend took to the stage at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena with Nettles and Hayes for a decidedly country take on his biggest hit yet. Honestly? It's gorgeous, a crossover triumph that shows how universally relatable and stunning Legend's writing is. 

"All Of Me" is such an impossible-to-ignore ballad that it'll work in any format. Seriously—if someone made a metal version of it, we'd listen to it and probably love it just as much. (The mandolin, emphatic acoustic guitar-strumming from Hayes and Nettles' soaring vocals were nothing to sneeze at, either.)

Watch Legend, Nettles and Hayes give "All Of Me" a country makeover above. Here's hoping this version gets cut for real and we've got two excuses to throw the tune on repeat.
