Confirming the news, Rascal Flatts singer Gary LeVox says, "(Bieber) asked us to do a duet with him on his next record. It's actually a really good song!"

And Justin Bieber is delighted to have been given the opportunity to work with the country stars.

He writes on his Twitter.com page, "I love @RascalFlatts and I'm honoured that they are making music with me."
