Brad Paisley has proven he’s not scared to collaborate outside country music: He and LL Cool J have appeared on each other’s albums.

And now for something completely different: Brad will play with the Nashville Symphony at its annual fundraising Symphony Ball Dec. 14 at Nashville’s opulent Schermerhorn Symphony Center.

That same evening, Brad is set to receive the prestigious Harmony Award.

The symphony’s CED, Alan Valentine, said in a statement that Brad has “made a huge impact by staying true to his artistic and personal vision.”

The symphony often gives the award to country superstars. Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Taylor Swift are among the past winners.
