No tricks, lots of treats!
Tim McGraw and The Mavericks debuted songs from their upcoming 2013 albums at a private Halloween show in Nashville on Wednesday.
During McGraw's preview of songs from Two Lanes of Freedom, he was joined by R&B crooner Ne-Yo.
"Tim and Ne-Yo aren't a new collaboration. Ne-Yo recorded 'Only Human' with the country singer for his Emotional Traffic album," a source tells PEOPLE.
The singers performed "Only Human" and "She Is" before McGraw closed the set with his new single "One of Those Nights."
"One of Those Nights" will make its television debut during Thursday's Country Music Awards on ABC.

With the teams of 12 in place, coaches Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green faced tough decisions Monday night as The Voice's battle rounds began.
But they had help: Kelly Clarkson and Shelton's wife Miranda Lambert assisted Team Blake; Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds and Ne-Yo advised Team Cee Lo; Alanis Morissette and Robin Thicke helped Team Adam; and Jewel and Lionel Richie guided Team Christina.
Levine picked U2's "Beautiful Day" for Chris Cauley and former Mouseketeer Tony Lucca. Both singers were strong in battle. Cee Lo said Lucca "articulated the song a lot clearer." Blake said he'd choose Cauley because his pitch was spot on. But Levine opted for Lucca saying, "Tony, you blow me away."

After spending the last four months in Prague where he was shooting the upcoming Tuskegee Airmen drama Red Tails alongside actors Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding Jr., singer-songwriter Ne-Yo is ready to let loose and head down South.
Hitting the stage at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans on Friday, Ne-Yo tells PEOPLE he's been prepping his moves. "I'm a little rusty right now; I can admit that! ... But it will not show by the time ya'll see me at Essence! Don't worry!" he assures his fans. Also on the Essence bill: Beyoncé, John Legend and Maxwell.
The star, who recently started rehearsals for his month-long European tour, added: "I've been off the radar while I was shooting [the film], but I'm getting my tour legs back. Performing music is in my blood. It's not like I’ll ever forget how to do it, but anything that you stop doing for a long enough period of time, you get a little rusty."
