Bob Seger may love that “Old Time Rock and Roll,” but apparently, he loves a little country too. 

The Rock & Roll Hall of Famer was in Nashville Sunday, October 22, to help induct Patty Loveless into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Patty was visibly shocked as the rock legend stepped onstage to perform her hit “She Drew a Broken Heart” in her honor. He’s such a fan, he’d previously traveled to her home in Georgia to add her background vocals to his project.

“I’m a little p***ed off. I just found out I have to follow Bob Seger,” Vince Gill, who’s currently performing on tour with the Eagles, quipped before singing a bit of Seger’s signature song. Vince went on to do Patty’s “Lonely Too Long” before officially welcoming her into the Hall of Fame, calling her both the “little sister I always wanted to sing with” and “perhaps the most authentic voice I’ve ever heard.”
