Guitar-slinging singer Phillip Phillips and country singers Luke Bryan and Kellie Pickler are set to perform at Major League Baseball All-Star Game. They will perform at the game airing live on Fox next Tuesday, July 10.

The crooner from Georgia will perform his first single, "Home", on field before the game. This is the same song he performed when he was hailed as "American Idol" winner for the 11th season and is his biggest hit so far.

Cute southern belle Pickler will be singing "God Bless America" during the 7th inning stretch. Country singer Bryan, meanwhile, is tasked with singing the national anthem before bats start swinging and baseballs start flying.

This will be Phillips' second live performance after his surgery to get his kidney stones removed. Phillips experienced chronic kidney problems throughout his run on "Idol" and went under the knife after the "Idol" finale.

His performance before Tuesday's game will be made special by a tribute highlighting recovery efforts in Joplin, Mo., and Tuscaloosa, Ala. which were destroyed due to a tornado. Nine homes for low-income families will be built by Habitat for Humanity due to the tragedy.

The night before, David Cook, another "Idol" winner, will sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" before the Home Run Derby. It will air on ESPN and will also include an on-field performance from Zac Brown Band.
