Of course there were a ton of artists walking the red carpet at the 2013 American Music Awards, but not many actually made music as they made their way to the ceremony.
One Direction guitarist Dan Richards was one that brought the music with him. Toting a new Fender CD-140S VA dreadnought acoustic guitar, Richards stopped at several spots on the red carpet to jam with Shark Tank‘s Kevin O’Leary, who originally pitched the traveler-friendly instrument to Fender executives Richard McDonald and Paul Meisenzahl on the show.
Check out video of O’Leary playing the guitar on the red carpet below, in addition to a few more photos from the event.
