Country music singer-songwriter Blake Shelton is ready to contribute to the upcoming UglyDolls movie! More on the artist's character and the film here!

Country music superstar Blake Shelton is set to join Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, Pitbull, Wanda Sykes, and Gabriel Iglesias in the animated feature film, UglyDolls. The Oklahoman will voice act and perform original songs as the character OX, the unofficial Mayor of Uglyville. That’s right PEOPLE‘s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ is about to be the leader of a place called Uglyville!

Watch Blake share his big news in the video posted to Twitter below!

“Blake is one of country music’s most talented and highly regarded artists, and his signature wit and infectious charisma lend themselves perfectly to the character of Ox, who fancies himself a defacto Mayor of the Uglydolls,” shares Adam Fogelson, Chairman of STXfilms. “Blake joins an incredible line-up of artists already announced on this project, including his friend and colleague Kelly Clarkson, with whom he has undeniable chemistry that is as genuine as it is hilarious.”

UglyDolls will hit theaters May 10, 2019 and the original motion picture soundtrack will be released by Atlantic Records. According to the press release regarding the project, the free-spirited Moxy [Kelly Clarkson] and her UglyDolls friends confront what it means to be different, struggle with their desire to be loved, and ultimately discover that you don’t have to be perfect to be amazing because who you truly are is what matters most.

This isn’t the first time Shelton’s distinctive voice has nabbed him a voice role. As fans may recall, Shelton voiced a very round and extremely green pig named Earl in 2016’s The Angry Birds Movie. The star also penned the original song “Friends” for the family-friendly flick.

“Friends” Lyrics

Oh
There’s a moment in this journey that I gave up
My boots just couldn’t walk another mile
And that cloud above me had no silver lining
I couldn’t buy a break with my last dime
Oh but when I saw you standing in the corner
I’d never thought that you would have my back
But then we rolled in like the thunder and the lightning
Threw some punches then we had a laugh
Just some roughed up desperados
Hanging tough through thick and thin
Kicking up dust wherever we go
I can see that you and me are gonna be friends
Who’d thought we’d wind up here together?
It’s crazy that we’re standing side by side
Fighting just like two birds of a feather
Who’s gonna tell us now that we can’t fly?
Just some roughed up desperados
Hanging tough through thick and thin
Kicking up dust wherever we go
And I can see that you and me are gonna be friends
To the end you and me are gonna be friends
Yeah
Here we go
Hey, hey you and me
Different as different can be
You like to rock, I like to roll
You take the high, I’ll take the low
Woah, woah-oh, woah-oh
Just some roughed up desperadoes
Hanging tough through thick and thin
Kicking up dust wherever we go
I can see that you and me are gonna be friends
To the end you and me are gonna be friends
And I can see that you and me are gonna be friends, yeah
