A very cool Eric Church, who sported aviator sunglasses and a hat, encouraged the audience to clap along to his drinking song 'Smoke a Little Smoke' at tonight's ACM Awards -- and like good country music fans, they obliged.

'Smoke a Little Smoke' rocked the Vegas audience and those of us tuned into CBS, but the new single from the North Carolina native is also shredding the airwaves. It follows Church's first two Top 10 hits, 'Love Your Love the Most' and 'Hell On the Heart,' from the 2009 release, 'Alabama.'

Church delivered an award-winning performance, though he's not slated for any awards at this year's ACMs.
