Brad Paisley and Keith Urban—in separate performances—will be representing country on Sunday’s (Feb. 9) CBS Beatles special, which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the band's appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.

Keith will be performing “Don’t Let Me Down” with John Mayer, and it won’t be the first time those two have done that song.

“I had seen them do ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ at the Eric Clapton Crossroads show last fall at the Garden in New York,” TV show producer Ken Ehrlich tells ABC News Radio, “and it was really amazing, with some blazing guitar solos. So I thought that would be great.”

Brad and Pharrell Williams will sing “Here Comes the Sun.”
