Four months ago, members of Little Big Town watched as Justin Timberlake shared a pair of show-stealing duets with Chris Stapleton during the 2015 CMA Awards. This week, the vocal group is teaming up with Timberlake for a songwriting session.

“NBD… Just writing with @littlebigtown,” Timberlake wrote on his Instagram page, accompanied by a selfie of the R&B singer with Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman. “This band is the truth!! So good!!!!”

While details about the collaboration remain scarce, Timberlake’s partnership with Little Big Town adds another country-leaning bullet point to a resume that already includes a duet with Garth Brooks during a Nashville concert in December 2014. A Memphis native and longtime country music fan, Timberlake released a version of his song “Drink You Away” to country radio last November, a few days after his CMA appearance. The song originally appeared on 2013’s The 20/20 Experience, meaning the singer is due for a new album.

Meanwhile, the members of Little Big Town are presumably gathering material for their follow-up to 2014’s Pain Killer. The band will be touring heavily this year, too, kicking off a multi-month trek on April 7th in Charleston, West Virginia.
