NASHVILLE , Oct. 16 (UPI) -- Actor Jamie Foxx has agreed to perform with Rascal Flatts at the upcoming 41st annual CMA Awards in Nashville, event organizers have announced.

Foxx -- an accomplished musician and Grammy-nominated recording artist -- won an Oscar for his portrayal of Ray Charles in the movie "Ray."

Rascal Flatts, nominated for Entertainer of the Year and Vocal Group of the Year, is slated to open "country music's biggest night" Nov. 7 with music from the band's third consecutive No. 1 album, "Still Feels Good."

Foxx will join them later in the broadcast for a performance of "She Goes All the Way," which was penned by Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney and which also is on Rascal Flatts' new album.

"This is destined to be the sort of one-of-a-kind performance the CMA Awards are known for," Tammy Genovese, CMA chief operating officer said. "When there is a meaningful and tangible connection between artists from seemingly diverse musical styles, bringing them together on the CMA Awards creates magical moments that resonate with our audience and expand awareness of the format."

The awards show is set to air live from the Sommet Center on ABC.
