A real-life country star is coming to Nashville.

The Grammy winner, 40, will perform with Connie Britton and Charles Esten's characters, Rayna and Deacon, at the CMA Awards during the episode, which airs May 22.

Cecconi's in West Hollywood was the site of a celebrity date night as Audi kicked off Golden Globes week with a star-studded bash on Sunday.
Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts arrived holding hands and spent the evening cozied up in one corner of the restaurant's covered patio, an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
With Schreiber sipping on a glass of red wine with one arm draped adoringly around the beaming Watts's waist, the duo couldn't look any more in love.
The couple later caught up with actress Kate Bosworth and her fiancé, director Michael Polish, with Schreiber only breaking away to cross the crowded room and greet a late-arriving, Connie Britton, who was resplendent in an off-the-shoulder floor-length red gown.

It was arguably the most-anticipated premiere of the season, filled with big, brassy country performances (by Connie Britton's Rayna and Hayden Panettiere's Juliette), crying drama queens (that would be Juliette, again) and, of course, sex (Juliette! Behave!).
But was ABC's heavily hyped Nashville all it promised to be?
Here's what y'all (plus some country stars!) had to say:

Connie Britton's TV resumé is nothing if not well-rounded.
The actress, 45, has played working mom Tami Taylor on Friday Night Lights, the haunted and troubled Vivien on American Horror Story, and now, she'll portray fading country star Rayna James on the upcoming Nashville.
But for all her characters' differences, Britton is keen on bringing one unifying characteristic to each of the roles.
"It's important in whatever character I play that I show as many different levels of what it is to be a woman as I can. That includes being sexy!" Britton tells Redbook in its November issue.

From Nashville to Hollywood!
Before she hit the red carpet at the Emmys on Sunday, Hayden Panettiere visited the Emergen-C Gift Lounge in Los Angeles.
A glowing Panettiere perused the sneakers at the New Balance booth while talking about her recent move for new show, Nashville.
"It's all barbecue and I love it way too much," she said about what she's been eating off-set.
"I now have to run a lot more than I used to. I try to run every day if I'm not too tired," the svelte starlet added.
Nashville, a musical drama which also stars Connie Britton, premieres Oct. 10.

Is it Music City – or Drama City?
Hayden Panettiere and Connie Britton are going head-to-head (more like voice-to-voice) in Nashville, ABC's upcoming musical drama that pits a veteran country star against the latest ingénue in cowboy boots.
"My character, Juliette Barnes, is very edgy," Panettiere, 22, says of her on-screen alter ego in a preview of the series (watch below), which premieres Oct. 10. "She comes off very diva-ish and bratty and snotty sometimes."
