The holiday season is fast approaching, and three huge country stars are joining in the festivities this year. Dolly Parton, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are set to bring some holiday cheer to New York City with NBC’s Christmas in Rockefeller Center.

All three stars will perform during the event, along with Tony Bennett, Neil Diamond, Josh Groban, Tori Kelly, Sarah McLachlan and more. This will all lead up to the annual lighting of the famous Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. Fun fact: this year’s tree is approximately 90 years old, weighs approximately 14 tons, and will be decorated with more than 50,000 lights!

Brooks and Yearwood are gearing up to release Christmas Together, a holiday duets album due out on Nov. 11. Parton certainly has plenty of Christmas tracks to choose from (“Hard Candy Christmas,” anyone?). But she’ll also be promoting her upcoming television movie, Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love.

Earlier this week, Parton and Brooks both walked away winners at this year’s CMA Awards. Parton was presented the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award, while Brooks walked away with the coveted Entertainer of the Year Award.

You can check out the 84th annual Christmas at Rockefeller Center tree lighting on Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
