Country singer and comedian Ray Stevens delivered a massive throwback when a former performance of the star had fans grooving along and appreciating his keen sense of creativity. Sporting a printed, orange button-up and dark pants, Stevens was a ball of energy as he gave a killer performance to Chuck Berry’s iconic hit “Johnny B. Goode”.

“Deep down in Louisiana close to New Orleans/ Way back up in the woods among the evergreens/ There stood a log cabin made of earth and wood/ Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode,” he sang, building up his crowd and feeding off of their endless praise. Stevens put his own unique twist on the rock hit, utilizing his sharp vocals and soulful gift to revamp the upbeat tune and thrill his fans. 

Recorded in 1958, “Johnny B. Goode” was one of Berry’s most notable hits, as it rose to imminent success and was later ranked no.7 on Rolling Stone’s 2004 list classifying the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
