Cole Swindell and Dierks Bentley perform onstage during the 52nd Academy Of Country Music Awards at T-Mobile Arena on April 2, 2017 in Las Vegas. 

Dierks Bentley took the stage to perform for the third time of the night at the ACM Awards on Sunday (Apr. 2) in order to help his buddy Cole Swindell out with a performance of Swindell's You Should Be Here opener "Flatliner." Though the performance was punctuated with the occasional sound of an EKG reading going dead, the duo's high-energy performance had heart and pulse rates elevated throughout T-Mobile Arena.

“I will never forget this moment on the ACMs," an obviously pumped Swindell testified at the end of his performance. "Dierks Bentley, thank you so much.”
