The Academy of Country Music Awards are taking a page from the Grammys and CMAs with a superstar pairing.

Dolly Parton and Katy Perry will share the stage at the April 3 show for a duet, marking their first live performance together.

Parton, who announced recently that she will embark on a 60-city tour, will receive the Tex Ritter Award for her TV movie, “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors,” which aired in December and co-starred Georgia native Jennifer Nettles.

The 51st Academy of Country Music Awards will be co-hosted by Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley and air live on CBS at 8 p.m. April 3.

Other acts slated to perform are Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Sam Hunt, Eric Church, Chris Stapleton, Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia Line and Tim McGraw.
