We knew he was from Oklahoma, but we had no idea James Marsden could sing country like this.

When the actor and his Best of Me co-stars stopped by On Air With Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday (Oct. 8), they were joined by Lady Antebellum, who have a song on the soundtrack for the Nicholas Sparks adaptation. Seacrest suggested that Marsden join Lady A for a song, and though he was initially reluctant, he rose to the challenge once the first lines of Garth Brooks' "Friends in Low Places" came out of his mouth.

"Now I'm just pissed, because he's better than me," Lady Antebellum singer/guitarist Charles Kelley joked.
