Keith Urban is going to be the country music representative for a star-studded TV show salute to The Beatles, organizers say.

The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles is set to air on CBS at 8 p.m. ET Feb. 9—exactly 50 years to the day after The Beatles’ first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.

Keith is set to perform with pop star John Mayer, but there’s no word on which song they’ll do.

Also slated for the special, which will be taped the night after the Jan. 26 Grammy awards show: Maroon 5, John Legend, Alicia Keys and Eurythmics’ Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart.
