Lil Wayne took a step closer to becoming a true rock star by performing alongside Kid Rock during the Country Music Awards in Nashville last night (11/12).

Birdman Jr. assisted Rock in performing his song "All Summer Long." But rather than rap as he did with Rock at this year's MTV Video Music Awards, Wayne, sporting a Tennessee Titans football jersey, played the background as he strummed his guitar. Reports say Weezy wasn't actually playing, but mimicking as Rock's actual guitarist played the tune.

Weezy became the first rap artist to perform on country music's biggest stage. Self-proclaimed "Hick-Hop" artist Cowboy Troy appeared in the event back in 2004. -Marvin Brandon
