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.

Early in her career Faith Hill sang "Let's Go to Vegas." Later this year, she and her superstar husband, Tim McGraw, will do just that.
The country music power couple will begin a run of concerts at the Venetian Las Vegas Casino, Hotel & Resort on Dec. 7.
"This will be a moment in time in our careers," McGraw, 45, said Tuesday of the Soul2Soul series, which will feature 40 shows in an intimate 1,800-seat theater through April 2013.
The deal, in the works for over a year, calls for only weekend shows to make things easier for daughters Gracie, 15, Maggie, 13, and Audrey, 10, who all attend school in Nashville.

Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney have been in the country music biz long enough to know what fans want – and what they don't.
"I tell you what we won't be doing on tour – love ballad duets!" Chesney, 44, tells PEOPLE Country's July issue. "That time of night, in a football stadium, they want it loud and fast. That's what we'll give them."
The friends and touring buddies also give country fans tons of insight into their 21-year friendship in the new issue, including what Chesney thinks of McGraw's wife, Faith Hill, what their moms have in common, and what they've enjoyed doing together over the years.

It was a gorgeous, slightly breezy day in Nashville. There was a breakfast buffet stocked with muffins and fruit set up – and the sound of gunfire crackled loudly in the air.
Turns out, Tim McGraw had a specific target in mind.
"I'm going to take out Luke Bryan," the country superstar, and host of the charity Tug McGraw Celebrity Sporting Clay Shootout, said jokingly to PEOPLE Tuesday at the Nashville Gun Club. "He's a Georgia boy, and I'm a Louisiana boy, so I've got an advantage right off."
"But I'm a little rusty, so I'm aiming for Luke's foot," McGraw, slated to hit the road this weekend on his summer tour with Kenny Chesney, continued. "I think if I can take him out, I've got it."

Blake Shelton may be "Country's Hottest Guy," according to PEOPLE Country's latest issue, but he doesn't always feel like it.
"Right now, I'm feeling sweaty and a little bit overweight and buzzed," The Voice coach joked with PEOPLE during ACM rehearsals this weekend. "I exude sexy. I smell of sexy. I am the vision of sexy. I am the sound of sexy."
Of course, Shelton knows he was up against steep competition – past winners Tim McGraw and Keith Urban come to mind – but he believes he knows why he came out on top.

A larger-than-life wedding and a whirlwind divorce: Kim Kardashian's divorce could pass for the plot of a country ballad.
And Wednesday night, it did just that.
As Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley took to the Bridgestone Arena stage for Nashville's biggest night at the Country Music Association Awards, the four-time hosts addressed Kardashian and Kris Humphries with a tongue-in-cheek tune.

Between managing a household with three daughters and working on her first album of new music since 2005, Faith Hill rarely slows down, but lately she has found time to smell the flowers – quite literally.
"I have a rose garden that I've wanted for years," says Hill, 44, in the new PEOPLE Country cover story. "It's been a source of therapy and a moment of quietness in the middle of chaos. It reminds me how much gardening and sharing the fruits of your labor was part of my childhood."
Over the summer, Hill would take her roses to the studio as she put the finishing touches on her album, due out early next year. The blooms offered a boost amid a lengthy and sometimes painful process of crafting an album that "truly represented where I am in life," says the singer, who will perform her first new single, "Come Home," at the CMA Awards on Wednesday.
