The Academy of Country Music announced during a conference call today that Hunter Hayes and Stevie Wonder will perform together during the live broadcast of the ACM Awards on April 7.

According to R.A. Clark, son of the late Dick Clark and executive producer of the ACM Awards, as the show producers were talking to Hunter about his musical influences, Stevie Wonder’s name came up. They then put a call into Wonder, and he agree to do it.

Hunter is one of the hottest rising stars in country music today, which was something that was not lost on Wonder. “When we reached out to Stevie,” said ACM president Bob Romeo, “he knew a handful of Hunter’s songs and he wanted to jump on the bandwagon.”

The song they’ll perform together won’t be revealed, but the producers did say it would be one of Wonder’s “monster” classics.

The duet will come right after Hunter debuts a brand-new song of his own, “I Want Crazy.”
