Zac Brown, T Bone Burnett (as musical director), Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard, Elton John, Mumford & Sons, and Mavis Staples, who will pay tribute to the late Levon Helm of the Band (WHAT? THAT'S CRAZY!)

Stanley Clarke, Chick Corea and Kenny Garrett in tribute to Dave Brubeck (HELL YES)

Kelly Clarkson (I REALLY WANT TO SEE THIS)

Dr. John and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band with the Black Keys (I AM DYING OF JOY)
