Jay Leno says goodbye to The Tonight Show, his late-night gig of 22 years, Feb. 6, and he’s including country music in his final week.

In fact, Garth Brooks is set to be on that very last Feb. 6 show, along with Billy Crystal, who was also Jay’s very first guest back in 1992, the Associated Press reports.

Also slated for the final week, starting Monday, Feb. 3, are Blake Shelton and Lyle Lovett.

Jimmy Fallon—an avowed country music fan—takes over for Jay starting Feb. 17.
