Justin Timberlake is bringing country back. The "Sexy Back" singer is confirmed to take the stage at the Country Music Association Awards live from Nashville, Tenn. on Wednesday night, but he won't be doing it alone. Timberlake will perform with country singer Chris Stapleton, a relative newbie to the scene whom Timberlake has been a fan of for quite some time and who is up for three awards at the show—male vocalist of the year, new artist of the year, and album of the year.

"Finishing up rehearsals... Honored to share the stage with this BADASS. Wednesday night. Memphis x Nashville. @castapleton #CMAawards," the new dad captioned a photo of himself and Stapleton rehearsing on stage at the Bridgestone Arena.

But Timberlake won't be the only notable artist performing at the CMA Awards. He joins a previously-announced roster that includes Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley (who are co-hosting the show), Kasey Musgraves, Keith Urban, Florida George Line, Blake Shelton, and Miranda Lambert .

The CMA Awards will air live this Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
