Bryan will join John Legend, Demi Lovato and Meghan Trainor to pay musical tribute to the 2016 MusiCares Person of the Year, with a medley spanning Commodores-era classics and some of the solo hits that earned Richie a Grammy for Album of the Year in 1984. Richie has won a career total of four Grammys.

He will also be on hand to join in performing a special collaborative version of one of his all-time classics. The special performance marks the Grammy debuts of Bryan, Lovato and Trainor.

Country-turned-pop superstar Taylor Swift will open the 2016 Grammy Awards, and the list of performers includes Chris Stapleton — who will join in an all-star salute to B.B. King — Little Big Town, and a collaboration between Carrie Underwood and Sam Hunt.

The 2016 Grammy Awards will broadcast live on CBS on Monday, Feb. 15 at 8PM ET. More performers are to be announced.
