Three hit songs from 1993 will be resurrected by the original hitmakers at the 2018 ACM Awards this Sunday.

Well-known songs from Toby Keith, Alan Jackson and Reba McEntire will by performed by the original artists and their contemporar friends. Blake Shelton will join Keith for “Should’ve Been a Cowboy,” Jon Pardi is set to join Jackson for “Chattahoochee” and Kelly Clarkson will join McEntire for “Does He Love You,” a song she originally made famous with Linda Davis.

The flashback performances are a first for the ACM Awards, and a press release indicates it’s a tradition they’ll keep alive in years to come. Additional collaborations announced on Wednesday include Kane Brown with Lauren Alaina to sing “What Ifs” and Keith Urban with pop singer Julia Michaels to sing “Coming Home.” Dan + Shay, Darius Rucker and Chris Young will perform as well, but separately. They join previously announced performers like Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan and Kenny Chesney.

The 2018 ACM Awards take place on April 15 at 8PM ET and are aired on CBS. McEntire will return as host after several years off. The show is packed with performances, including what’s expected to be a powerful tribute to victims of the Las Vegas shooting of 2017. Officials say that will come early during the three-hour telecast, but no one has shared any details.

Jason Aldean is the two-time reigning Entertainer of the Year. He’s up for the award once again alongside Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Chris Stapleton and Keith Urban. Taste of Country predicts he’ll win for a third straight year, but that Stapleton will have the biggest night in country music.

Remember: The best way to watch the ACM Awards is on TV, with TOC on your phone.
