The upcoming Oscars ceremony just got a big name added to its list of musical performers.

Today (Jan. 29) it was revealed that Tim McGraw will perform Glen Campbell‘s Oscar-nominated song “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” during the Feb. 22 ceremony.

McGraw’s performance of Campbell’s final song is a dedication to the singer, who has been battling Alzheimer’s.

“I’m honored to be asked to sing this powerful song from one of the true legends of the music industry,” McGraw said in a press release.
