Dave Matthews will join country’s biggest names at this year’s CMA Awards, delivering a duet with Kenny Chesney and adding another rock presence to the ceremony’s lineup. Last week, it was announced that Daughtry – along with Vince Gill – would perform on the show, which will air on ABC Wednesday, Nov. 11, 8 p.m. ET.

Matthews, 42, will be making his debut appearance on the awards show, where he will perform “I’m Alive,” a Top 10 country hit from Chesney’s Lucky Old Sun album.

Already announced to perform on the awards show are Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and others.
