Grammy-winning musical artists Taylor Swift and Jason Mraz join the ballroom Tuesday night for unforgettable performances

Put on your cowboy wear: It's country night on "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars," Monday, Oct. 29 (8 until 10:01 p.m.) on the ABC Television Network. Each couple will perform to a country hit song where the celebrity will be required to perform a solo during his or her routine. Three-time CMA Award-nominated group Little Big Town will rock the stage, performing their smash hit, "Pontoon," accompanied by The Troupe. The remaining eight couples will perform together in a freestyle group dance. Accompanying the group dance, country legends Big & Rich, along with Cowboy Troy, will perform a medley of "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)" and "I Play Chicken with the Train," two of the show's most exciting freestyle songs from previous seasons. This is the first time the show's group dance will be accompanied by musical guests.

The next night, Tuesday, Oct. 30 (8 p.m.), multi-platinum recording artist and six-time Grammy winner Taylor Swift will perform her mega hit single, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," from her new blockbuster album, "Red." In addition Grammy-winning singer and songwriter Jason Mraz will hit the stage to perform his chart topping hit single, "I Won't Give Up," from his latest album, "Love is a Four Letter Word." Pro dancers Chelsie Hightower and Mark Ballas will dance during his live performance. And this week's "Macy's Stars of Dance" welcomes RJ Durell and Nick Florez, two of the hottest choreographers in the business, having worked with Katy Perry, Cher Lloyd and, most recently, Pink. Their dance will bring a modern day twist on Marie Antoinette, featuring incredible costumes, amazing hair and makeup, and 14 of some of the best dancers out there.

Hosted by Emmy Award winner Tom Bergeron ("America's Funniest Home Videos") and Brooke Burke-Charvet ("Dancing with the Stars" season seven champion), the celebrities perform choreographed dance routines which will be judged by renowned ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.
