Katy Perry's preparing to take a spin on the Merry Go Round

As Kacey Musgraves' is practicing her Roar!

But why, you may ask??

This powerhouse duo is teaming up for the 50th episode of CMT Crossroads, a concert series that pairs country acts with artists outside their genre for an epic televised show!

In a new interview, Kitty Purry's momma couldn't stop gushing about how excited she is to work with Kacey:

“From the moment I heard Merry Go Round by Kacey Musgraves, I knew we were cut from the same songwriter’s cloth. I have been a fan and a friend of hers from the beginning, always championing her prolific songs every opportunity I get. To me, Kacey Musgraves is an artist that should be a household name because she offers a unique perspective with her writing style. It's going to be a BLAST to play on each other’s songs this Crossroads. It will be a preview to our Prismatic World Tour road trip this summer WHICH I CAN'T WAIT FOR!”

And the Follow Your Arrow singer had nothing but kind words to say about Katy:

"I've been such a HUGE fan of Katy and her vision since I found out about her. And since she's found out about me she's been an amazing light and friend to me. So, joining forces with her for Crossroads is going to be incredible. In some ways we're on opposite ends of the spectrum, but in a lot of ways our music makes total sense together. Her songs, while having grit, are so fun and it'll be a cool challenge to throw a little country on 'em. I love her brain and her heart and I can't wait for our two musical worlds to collide!"

This is going to be SO MUCH FUN!

Both singer's have already worked together in writing sessions and during Miz Perry's “We Can Survive” charity concert at the Hollywood Bowl last October—so this should be a super fun country breeze!

Crossroads airs June 13 at 10 p.m. ET on CMT, and we couldn't be more excited for this country pop clash!!

    Re: sunshines – I agree. If you're looking solely at the songs they've written, Kacey Musgraves is LEAPS AND BOUNDS better at writing than Katy Perry is. Kacey is a true wonder at writing, and her songs are beautiful. And that's just with the songwriting. If you're talking about the actual music, I can listen to Kacey's entire album on repeat for hours- and I'm not even a country music fan. I can barely stomach Katy's auto-tuned mess of "music." Katy Perry should never compare herself to her. Ever.
