The 51st Academy of Country Music Awards will include a duet between two superstars this year. Dolly Parton announced Monday that she will perform with Katy Perry at the event.

In a video on her website, Parton revealed that her TV movie Coat of Many Colors will be honored with the Tex Ritter Award, given to an outstanding film from the previous year that features country music. This will be the eighth ACM Award for Parton, who was an executive producer and the narrator of the movie.

Parton also announced that the award will be presented to her by Katy Perry, and that the two singers will sing together for the first time. They join previously announced performers, including Thomas Rhett, Chris Stapleton, Carrie Underwood, Chris Young, and many more.

The 51st annual ACM Awards will air Sunday, April 3 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS, hosted by Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley. See the full list of nominees here, and watch Dolly Parton’s announcement below.
