Taylor Swift has recruited fellow musicians Vince Gill and Alison Krauss to form a super-group for a one-off performance at the upcoming Country Music Association Awards.

The country star, 23, will also team up with Sam Bush, bassist Edgar Meyer and percussionist Eric Darken to play a unique rendition of her hit single “Red” at the ceremony, although she is keeping all other details about the gig under wraps.

All will be revealed on Nov. 6, when the singer heads to the ceremony in Nashville as a six-time nominee, competing for a slew of top honors, including the coveted Entertainer of the Year title.

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley will co-host the CMA ceremony for the sixth consecutive year, while Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan and George Strait are also due to perform.
