Kacey Musgraves and Katy Perry Will Sing Together on “CMT Crossroads”
The 50th episode of the long-running CMT Crossroads is going to be a special one. This time around, the popular genre-hopping program will bring together country darling Kacey Musgraves with global pop superstar Katy Perry for a night of stories and songs. The episode will air Friday, June 13, at 10 p.m. ET on CMT with subsequent airings on VH1, MTV, MTV Hits and Palladia.
“From the moment I heard ‘Merry Go ’Round’ by Kacey Musgraves, I knew we were cut from the same songwriter’s cloth,” said Katy in a statement. “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!”
“I’ve been such a HUGE fan of Katy and her vision since I found out about her,” added Kacey “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!”
The two artists will have more time to bond later in summer, when Kacey joins Katy’s Prismatic World Tour for a series of dates in August.
