The annual Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo has announced its lineup for the 2016 event … from space.

The jam-packed list of artists included a boatload of big names in country and several in other genres, and astronaut Commander Scott Kelly took the time to introduce the unveiling of the names all the way from the International Space Station.

Little Big Town, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Darius Rucker, Chris Young, the Band Perry: all of these and more will be taking the stage March 1-20, 2016 during the nearly 85-year-old show, which seeks to promote the breeding, raising and marketing of better livestock and farm products at public fairs. It also encourages and maintains research and educational functions within the livestock industry. Proceeds from the nonprofit charity show benefit youth, support education and facilitate better agricultural practices.

Currently, the 2016 Rodeo Houston lineup features 21 artists, also including Luke Bryan, Billy Currington and Miranda Lambert, not to mention several pop artists. Tickets for the event go on sale Jan. 16 via the event site.
