Brad Paisley will join actor Will Ferrell and some serious rock 'n' roll heavy hitters to form a supergroup. It's all part of "Will Ferrell's Best Night of Your Life," a one night charity event taking place on Saturday, Oct. 6 in Los Angeles.

Paisley will join Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, along with Chris Martin of Coldplay and members of Pearl Jam and Guns N' Roses. Together they're known as the Super Mega Funktastic Jam Rock All-Stars.

"Will Ferrell's Best Night of Your Life" will benefit Cancer for College, an organization that provides scholarships to cancer survivors.

In addition to the supergroup star power, the night will feature appearances by Jimmy Kimmel, Samantha Bee, Jerry Seinfeld, Conan O'Brien, James Corden and many more.

Ferrell introduced the event in typical hilarious fashion, joking about past amazing experiences, including scaling Mount Everest with Barack Obama and riding motorcycles through Ecuador with Mick Jagger.

"I've had the opportunity to do a lot of amazing things in my life. For instance, there was that time I scaled Mount Everest with Barack Obama and members of the band White Snake. I once rode motorcycles through Ecuador with Mick Jagger and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. I haven't even mentioned the time I spent an entire weekend in an Irish pub drinking beers with Bill Gates and The Weeknd," Ferrell said in a statement. "So when I tell you that our big comedy and music extravaganza on October 6 at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles is going to be the best night of your life, I'm speaking from experience. Listen to me when I say you need to go right now to your local Ticketron, Tower Records, Licorice Pizza or where ever they sell concert tickets and get in line now because this show is going to be huge and it's going to sell out. I think that's all I need to say."
