Jamie Foxx Joining Rascal Flatts on CMA Awards

Actor-comedian Jamie Foxx will appear with Rascal Flatts at the 2007 CMA Awards show. Foxx, who won an Academy Award for his portrayal of Ray Charles in the film Ray, will join the trio to perform “She Goes All the Way,” a song he recorded with them for their new album, Still Feels Good. Rascal Flatts will also open the awards show with the album’s title track. Lead vocalist Gary LeVox and Foxx have known each other for more than a decade after being introduced by Foxx’s manager. LeVox and Foxx were roommates for a brief time in the late ’90s while LeVox was pursuing a music career in California. They have remained in regular contact since running into each other earlier this year at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. “Jamie is an incredible talent, and we were thrilled he took us up on our invitation to join us on the song,” LeVox said of the recording session. “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.” Taking place Nov. 7 in Nashville, the CMA Awards will be telecast on ABC.
