“The Voice” is saying howdy to another county music icon.

Keith Urban is joining season 25 as the show’s latest mega mentor, the NBC singing competition series announced March 24.

The Grammy winner will guide the remaining hopefuls on teams John Legend, Chance The Rapper, Reba McEntire and Dan + Shay as they prepare for the Knockout Rounds.

This isn’t Urban’s first time appearing on “The Voice” as he previously served as a mentor during season 15 in 2018.

Other music legends who have earned the title of mega mentor include Dua Lipa, Kevin Jonas and Joe Jonas, Usher, Selena Gomez, Missy Elliot, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Celine Dion, Camila Cabello and Kristin Chenoweth.

Season 25 coaches McEntire and Dan + Shay (a.k.a. Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney) also previously appeared as mentors in past seasons before taking a seat in the famed red swivel chairs.

And as the coaches previously teased, Urban will have some pretty talented competitors to guide along their way to the win.

“I’m really, really tickled with my team and I feel like, yes, there are some superstars,” McEntire told E! News last month. “All of our teams are really, really good.”

And despite it being McEntire’s first season as a full-time coach, it sounds like she’s certainly gunning for her first win.

As Legend revealed, “She’s so good on the show. She really connects with her artists. She’s gotten emotionally invested in them. I feel like she’s doing such a great job.”

“The Voice” airs Monday at 8 p.m. and Tuesday at 9 p.m. on NBC.
