On Friday (June 13), fans can watch the two stars team up to perform their most popular tunes on the 50th episode of the innovative performance series. But CMT Artists App users can get an exclusive sneak peek of “Merry Go ‘Round” now.
Download the CMT Artists App on the App Store or Google Play to watch the full performance. Then catch extended interview scenes and outtakes, including a recollection of the moment the pop princess first heard Musgraves’ debut single.
“The first time I heard of Kacey Musgraves … I heard it on the Internet,” said Perry about listening to “Merry Go ‘Round.” “I heard it, and I was instantly mesmerized by your lyrical styles, and now you’ve won two Grammys? Three?”
“Um, two,” Musgraves replied. It’s been a crazy year. I mean literally — like insanity.”
The award-winning vocalists will not only share the stage, but their bands will join forces, too, for what has been christened as the night “Hollywood meets Nashville.”
“I love it!” Musgraves exclaimed.
CMT Crossroads: Katy Perry and Kacey Musgraves premieres Friday (June 13) at 10 p.m. ET/PT and features Perry’s “Roar” and “Firework” and Musgraves’ “Follow Your Arrow,” as well as interviews and covers of Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” and Dolly Parton’s “Here You Come Again.”
