Arsenio Hall and Kelsea Ballerini will be your guides through musical history.

ABC has announced the two as hosts for a new six-episode music series called Greatest Hits, looking back to the defining songs of the ’80s, ’90s, and 2000s. The installments will dig into hits from different five-year periods and feature performances from “iconic music artists, as well as today’s music chart-toppers,” resulting in new duets and tributes.

Hall hosted a revived edition of the nationally syndicated The Arsenio Hall Show from 2013 to 2014. He appeared as a guest star on BET’s Real Husbands of Hollywood a few times, as recently as February.

His cohost will be rising country star Ballerini. The 22-year-old singer-songwriter began her career with two gold singles with “Love Me Like You Mean It” and “Dibs.” Each made its way to the top-10 of Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs.
