NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Singer and songwriter Jackson Browne will join members of the Eagles in a tribute to the band’s founding member Glenn Frey during Monday’s 58th annual Grammy Awards.

Frey died Jan. 18 of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia at the age of 67. Browne will join the Eagles’ Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Timothy B. Schmit and Bernie Leadon during a special performance during the show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Browne and Frey wrote together early on in their careers, including the Eagles’ first single in 1972 and one of their signature songs, “Take It Easy.”

The Grammy Awards will be broadcast live from Los Angeles on CBS at 8 p.m. EST.
