Bruce Springsteen and country music have had a love affair for a good decade or so, and that continues Friday night (Feb. 8) in Los Angeles.

Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Emmylou Harris and even Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks are set to sing at a pre-Grammy Awards salute to the Boss.

The star-studded event—which also includes Bono, Aretha Franklin, Tony Bennett and Paul McCartney—is a fundraiser for MusiCares, the Grammys' charity arm, which helps musicians and music industry members through tough times.

Tim and Faith will do a duet of Bruce's "Tougher Than the Rest," and Tim tells ABC News Radio that he admires how Bruce can translate people's feelings into song.

"The great thing about music, and what Bruce is able to do, is it describes situations and describes feelings and emotions that you didn't realize that you had or you didn't know how to voice those opinions or voice those emotions," Tim said. "And he puts that to music."
