Big & Rich are set to appear on 'Guitar Center Sessions' on Friday (Jan. 2), but Taste of Country readers are getting an early look at the episode.

The country duo are the latest stars to appear on the series from DIRECTV, which features musicians from across all genres in interviews with host Nic Harcourt and intimate live performances. Now in its ninth season, the series has won multiple accolades, including four 2014 Telly Awards.

In the exclusive clip above, Big & Rich perform 'Lovin' Lately' from their current album, 'Gravity.' The new project is the duo's first for their self-owned Big & Rich Records. Tim McGraw joins them on the studio version of 'Lovin' Lately,' but their live performance on 'Guitar Center Sessions' spotlights the duo in a stripped-down performance, featuring just their voices and acoustic guitars.

'Guitar Center Sessions' airs on DIRECTV's Audience (channel 239) on Friday nights at 9PM.
