Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood will honor some of the most legendary duets in country music at the 2016 CMA Awards next month.

Brooks revealed that superstar couple will sing a medley of duets during the show at his Dallas press conference on Oct. 13. This news cements the rumors that this year’s broadcast, which also marks the CMA’s 50th anniversary, will focus more on classic country music instead of today’s hits. For now, Brooks and Yearwood are keeping their specific song choices a secret until the big day.

Earlier this week, Brooks released his new single, “Baby, Let’s Lay Down and Dance.” Fans can currently only download the track through an access code printed inside specially-packaged Fritos corn chips bags.

On Nov. 11, Brooks will also release a new Christmas duets album with Trisha Yearwood. That same day, fans can purchase his new box set, The Ultimate Collection, which features nine discs of music from throughout Brooks’ career.
