According to Entertainment Weekly, NBC's Parks and Recreation will be welcoming Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy as a guest star in early spring.

Tweedy will travel to Pawnee as the former lead singer of the local band "Land Ho!".

"Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Andy (Chris Pratt) are trying to convince him to reunite for the big Unity Concert they are organizing to solidify the merger of Pawnee and Eagleton," the show's executive producer Michael Schur told EW.

The band has released eight studio albums. Wilco's 2002 album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is their best-selling recording; their 2004 album A Ghost Is Born won two Grammy Awards. Wilco's most recent album, The Whole Love, was released in September 2011.

About PARKS AND RECREATION: From Emmy Award-winning executive producers Greg Daniels (NBC's "The Office," "King of the Hill") and Michael Schur (NBC's "The Office," "Saturday Night Live"), "Parks and Recreation" is a hilarious ensemble comedy that follows Leslie Knope (Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Amy Poehler, NBC's "Saturday Night Live," "Baby Mama"), a mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Indiana, and her tireless efforts to make her quintessentially American town just a little bit more fun.

In the Pawnee Parks and Recreation Department, Leslie's office mates include Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe, "Brothers and Sisters," "The West Wing"), a health nut who wants to live to be 150 years old, and Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari, "Human Giant," "Scrubs"), a fashion-obsessed wannabe player whose greatest dream is to own his own nightclub. Leslie's boss, Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman, "Children's Hospital"), hates the very government he works for, and sports one of the most impressive moustaches on Primetime television. Rounding out the cast are: Adam Scott ("Friends with Kids," "Party Down") as Leslie's husband and former campaign manager, Ben Wyatt; Rashida Jones ( "Celeste and Jesse Forever," "The Office") as her best friend, Ann; Chris Pratt ("Zero Dark Thirty," "Moneyball") as shoeshine boy extraordinaire Andy Dwyer; and Aubrey Plaza ("Funny People") as Andy's wife, April, who doubles as Ron's sullen assistant. Also starring are Retta ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") as the fun-loving Donna Meagle and Jim O'Heir ("Castle") as the department's punching bag, Jerry Gergich.
