It looks like ‘The Voice’ has made Rascal Flatts fans of winner Craig Wayne Boyd. The trio have enlisted the Team Blake member to open for them in Las Vegas!

Sin City will go country when the Flatts take over the Joint for a residency show, and the ‘Payback’ singers have invited Boyd along for the fun.  Together, they’ll perform a total of nine shows at the Joint, which is located inside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The run kicks off on Feb. 25 and runs through March 14 (full dates listed here).

This isn’t the first time Vegas has welcomed country music with open arms; Rascal Flatts and Boyd are following in the footsteps of Shania TwainGarth BrooksTim McGraw and Faith Hill.

Boyd took to his Twitter page to reveal what’s an especially exciting announcement for him as a ‘new’ artist, saying he is both “honored” and “excited.” He made that loud and clear with the inclusion of the hashtags “#epic,” “#bucketlist” and “#dreamscometrue.”

He’s not the only one excited, however — Rascal Flatts’ Jay DeMarcus also can’t wait for the shows.

“We’re so excited to do something so different for us,” the Flatts singer says. “You will experience Rascal Flatts in a way you’ve never seen us before — up close, intimate and personal, and we promise you one thing, it’s going to rock!”

Tickets for the nine shows are already on sale.
