Welcome to SportsNation! On Thursday, fantasy football stud and Alice in Chains co-founder, Jerry Cantrell, stops by to chat about his music career as well as the "Alice in Chains & Friends Fantasy Football Charity League II," which features some of rock music's biggest stars.

Former NFL player turned actor Matt Willig won the inaugural event and Cantrell is set on claiming the title this year not only for bragging rights but because the league winner's charity receives proceeds of an auction of items donated by the league owners. Meat Loaf, Duff McKagan, ESPN's Jay Harris and several others round out the league.

Raised on country music, Cantrell's sound was shaped by the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Black Sabbath, leading to him co-founding one of the seminal rock bands of the 1990s. Alice in Chains went on hiatus for several years in the late '90s, during which time Cantrell released a pair of critically acclaimed solo albums, before the group reformed in 2005.

Send your questions now and join Cantrell Thursday at 5 p.m. ET!
