The collaboration will include Christina's song, "Shotgun," as well as the Flatts' new single, "Riot." Look for Christina to perform "Shotgun" during her three-episode story arc on ABC's Nashville, starting Wednesday night at 10 ET.

Rascal Flatts bass player Jay DeMarcus tells USA Today, "It's going to be a nice, seamless transition and a really powerful performance."

While Christina hasn't yet met the members of Rascal Flatts, she's a big fan of lead singer Gary LeVox's vocal performances.  Says Christina, "I really love the rich tone of [his] voice. He has a sound that fans recognize immediately."

Of course, Christina has become friends with Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, since she and Blake are both coaches on NBC's The Voice.

Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney, and Florida Georgia Line are among the stars performing on the 50th Annual ACM Awards Sunday night at 8:00 ET on CBS.

Reba Returns with New Album, “Love Somebody,” Out Now

Image Courtesy Starstruck RecordsReba's brand-new album, Love Somebody, is out Tuesday featuring her latest hit, "Going Out Like That." She was attracted to the sassy attitude of the woman in the song getting over her ex and on with her life.

Reba tells ABC Radio, "I think it's a woman's anthem, about not giving up, not giving in. I'm going out and having a blast. I ain't goin' out like that, like he expects me to."

When it came to finding songs for this album, Reba used her tried-and-true method of looking for lyrics she could relate to in some way.

"Same formula as always," Reba says. "Just trying to find the songs that touch my heart, 'cause if it touched my heart when I sing it, it's gonna touch your heart. Whether it's happy [or] sad."

Reba recruited some famous faces to help her out on Love Somebody. Jennifer Nettles is featured on the duet, "Enough," and Sam Hunt and Brandy Clark are among the writers on the album.

As for tapping into Music City's talented pool of songwriters for the project, Reba says, "There are so many great songwriters on this album that I've been a huge fan of for many years. Some new. Some…been around a long time. Can't say old anymore, because that'd be me too. I'm not gonna admit that. But talent. Talent is what Nashville is full of."

Tune in to see Reba on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live! Thursday night. She's also performing on the 50th Annual ACM Awards this Sunday night at 8 ET on CBS.
