Sporting dapper threads and a perfect pompadour, Ray Stevens transformed the CMA Theater into a Rat Pack-era Vegas showroom with an animated take on Jerry Reed’s rockabilly-pop romp “When You’re Hot, You’re Hot.” Complete with backup singers nailing the song’s “la-la-la’s,” and Stevens keeping it loose, hamming it up delivering the song’s old-timey lyrical bon mots with Dean Martin-worthy charisma, the performance perfectly conjured the lighthearted humor of country music’s golden era.
