Rascal Flatts, Darius Rucker and Jennifer Nettles will take the stage to honor Kenny Rogers after the country legend is presented with the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award during the 2013 CMA Awards.

The award was introduced last year in an effort to honor an iconic artist. It recognizes someone who has achieved international fame through music, concerts and humanitarian efforts. Rogers certainly fits that description, having sold 120 million albums worldwide while scoring five CMAs across his 30-plus-year country career. Last weekend, the legend was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

It’s not clear which songs Rascal Flatts, Nettles and Rucker will perform. Rogers’ biggest hits include ‘The Gambler,’ ‘Lady’ and ‘Islands in the Stream,’ a duet with Dolly Parton that reached No. 1 30 years ago this month. In total, Rogers has over 20 No. 1 hits and 12 No. 1 albums. In Oct. 2013, he released his 27th studio album, ‘You Can’t Make Old Friends.’

Additional performers for the 47th annual awards show include Alan Jackson, Taylor Swift and George Strait. For a full list of performers, click here.

The 2013 CMAs will air live on ABC on Nov. 6 at 8PM ET.
