Super hot country star Jason Aldean returned to the stage at the 2012 CMA Awards for his second performance of the night, treating the capacity crowd to a rocking version of his recent No. 1 hit 'Take a Little Ride' from the album 'Night Train.'

Aldean -- who also opened the show with a performance of his new single 'The Only Way I Know,' joined by Luke Bryan and Eric Church -- rocked the crowd with the song, which features his trademark blend of rockin' rhythms and screaming guitars.

The gig is good practice for Aldean, who is embarking on his first stadium tour soon. Tickets have been in such high demand that the singer recently had to add a second night at Fenway Park.
