JAMIE FOXX JOINS RASCAL FLATTS FOR PERFORMANCE ON "THE 41st ANNUAL CMA AWARDS"

Rascal Flatts to Open "Country Music's Biggest Night" with Music from Their Third Consecutive No. 1 Album, Still Feels Good

Foxx to Join Them Later in the Broadcast for Second Performance

Multi-talented, Academy Award-winning actor Jamie Foxx joins reigning CMA Awards Vocal Group of the Year Rascal Flatts for a duet performance during "The 41st Annual CMA Awards," WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 7 (8:00-11:00 p.m., ET) live from the Sommet Center in Nashville on the ABC Television Network.

Rascal Flatts, who are nominated for Entertainer of the Year, will open "Country Music's Biggest Night´┐Ż" with the title track from their third consecutive No. 1 album, Still Feels Good. Later in the broadcast, they will perform "She Goes All the Way" with Foxx. The duet with Foxx was penned by Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney and is also on the album.

LeVox and Foxx have known each other for more than a decade. They were introduced by Foxx's manager, Marcus King, and were roommates for a brief time in the late 1990s while LeVox was pursuing a music career on the west coast. They reestablished their friendship after running into each other at the 2007 Grammy Awards and have been in regular contact since, which resulted in the duet.

"Jamie is an incredible talent and we were thrilled he took us up on our invitation to join us on the song," said LeVox. "He said he'd do it if we would sing on one of his records, so it's a pretty good swap. He came to Nashville just after finishing his comedy tour to work on it with us."

"It was an easy song to write once we had the first few lines, and it's a really wonderful thing to have Jamie join us on the record," said DeMarcus. "We run into him at awards show and he always tells us how much he enjoys the music and how proud he is of Gary. We sent the song to him early this year and he said he'd love to do it."

"This is destined to be the sort of one-of-a-kind performance the CMA Awards are known for," said Tammy Genovese, CMA Chief Operating Officer. "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."

Rascal Flatts was nominated for Entertainer and Vocal Group of the Year. The Entertainer of the Year category has only been won by two groups in CMA Awards history, Alabama (1982, 1983, 1984) and Dixie Chicks (2000). Rascal Flatts has swept the Vocal Group of the Year category the past four years. Their album, Still Feels Good, was released September 25 and posted first week sales of 547,000 units, making it the week's top selling CD across all genres of music and the biggest unit opener in the Country format for the year. In 2006 Rascal Flatts were the top selling artists of any genre of music. In the seven years since launching their career, the band has sold more than 15 million albums and scored nine No. 1 singles.

Performers previously announced for the 2007 CMA Awards include Big & Rich, Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Chesney, Eagles, Martina McBride, Brad Paisley, George Strait, Sugarland, Josh Turner, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban. Other performers and presenters will be announced soon.

"The 41st Annual CMA Awards" is a production of the Country Music Association. Walter C. Miller is the executive producer and Robert Deaton is the producer. Paul Miller is the director. The special will be shot in high definition and broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format, with 5.1 channel surround sound and Spanish subtitles via secondary closed captioning. A TV parental guideline will be posted closer to airdate.
