The best voice in country music will be performing with Justin Timberlake at the CMA’s this Wednesday.
The song they’ll be singing hasn’t been announced, but Stapleton tells Rolling Stone Country that they “[have] always talked about finding a reason to do something together.” If you didn’t know, Justin is a big-time country music fan and was born in Memphis.
“Some people might want to burn me at the stake for it, or burn him at the stake for it,” Stapleton adds. “… But we’re going to have a good time.”
“I called him up with no thought of him agreeing to it, and he was ready to start planning it right then,” Stapleton said. “… He was so gracious and kind to want to do it and was so excited about it, and I’m excited about it. It’ll be something I’ve never done before for sure.”
