Chris Stapleton is the latest country act announced to perform at the 2016 MusiCares Person of the Year Tribute to Lionel Richie.

Dave Grohl, Rihanna and Florence Welch will also join the already announced lineup of Luke Bryan, Lenny Kravitz, Lady Antebellum, John Legend, Demi Lovato, the Roots, Usher, Pharrell Williams and Stevie Wonder as performers for the Feb. 13 concert event. It will be held at the West Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Money raised from the gala honoring Richie and his career and charitable work will benefit MusiCares Emergency Financial Assistance and Addiction Recovery Programs which offers services to members of the music community. Some of these services include emergency financial assistance for living expenses and medical expenses. Educational workshops are also provided to those in need.

Past MusiCares Person of the Year honorees include Tony Bennett, Bono, Natalie Cole, Phil Collins, David Crosby, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Gloria Estefan, Aretha Franklin, Don Henley, Billy Joel, Elton John, Quincy Jones, Carole King, Paul McCartney, Luciano Pavarotti, Bonnie Raitt, Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Barbra Streisand, James Taylor, Brian Wilson, Stevie Wonder and Neil Young.

This is just one of several performances Stapleton has been tapped for in 2016. He kicked off the year with his debut on Saturday Night Live and recently hit the beach for Luke Bryan’s Crash My Playa in Mexico. He has also been invited to perform at this year’s Bonnaroo and Coachella fests. Stapleton shares a co-headlining trek with Hank Williams Jr. too, which kicks off Aug. 5.
