Timberlake is a fan of Stapleton's, so it's no surprise that when the country star asked Timberlake to perform a duet with him at the CMAs, he said yes.

Stapleton told ABC it was as easy as calling the pop superstar to ask. Stapleton said Timberlake replied, "Yeah man, I'm in. Just tell me when to show up."
