A legend and a superstar walk onto a stage and make the room feel the love for country music, or so will be the case when Emmylou Harris and Chris Stapleton perform together live at the 60th GRAMMY Awards.

Announced early Wednesday morning (1/24), the two will take the event by storm by playing together as a part of the massive anniversary show like many other stars attending the event. Stapleton will celebrate his nominations for this year’s GRAMMYs and Harris will be honored with the Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award during the ceremony.

Country music will get its time to shine, not only with Stapleton and Harris’ mark, but also with performances from Little Big Town and a special tribute to the lives lost at the Route 91 Harvest Festival by Maren Morris, Eric Church and Brothers Osborne.

Many of the biggest names in the genre will be hanging out in the audience though, after raking in the nominations. Stapleton garnered the most nominations in all of country music with his nods in Best Country Solo Performance, Best Country Song and Best Country Album.

Miranda Lambert and Sam Hunt also received a couple slots among the respective categories for their hit singles and acclaimed releases of last year.

The 60th GRAMMY Awards will broadcast live from Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sunday, January 28, at 7:30 p.m. EST on CBS.
