Kacey Musgraves and Katy Perry will be teaming up for an upcoming episode of ‘CMT Crossroads.’

The episode is set to be taped later this month in Los Angeles, and will air on CMT on June 13, with airing on VH1, MTV and Palladia on later dates.

“I’ve been such a huge fan of Katy and her vision since I found out about her,” Musgraves tells Billboard in a statement. “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.”

Musgraves joined Perry at the We Can Survive charity concert in October at the Hollywood Bowl, and earned an opening slot on the ‘Dark Horse’ singer’s upcoming Prismatic Tour. The two have also spent time writing together.

“From the moment I heard ‘Merry Go Round’ by Kacey Musgraves, I knew we were cut from the same songwriter’s cloth,” Perry says. “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.’”

A full list of Musgraves’ tour dates, including dates on the Prismatic Tour beginning Aug. 10, is available on her website.
