Come June 13th, CMT’s Crossroads is going to give your TV a little mix of a pop with a little country. Kacey Musgraves and Katy Perry teamed up and already filmed their live one-hour long collaboration set in Los Angeles. The episode is said to feature hits like “Firework” and “Follow Your Arrow“, but the best news is that you don’t have to wait until June 13 to get a taste of their duets. Here are Musgraves and Perry performing “Roar“.
Tell me what you think of Kacey and Katy’s performance over on Twitter at @tylerwinters_.
Kacey Musgraves, released her debut album, “Same Trailer Different Park,” an album which she co-produced with Shane McAnally and Luke Laird. Musgraves’ album debuted at Number 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, making her the first solo female in five years to debut at Number 1 with a rookie release and just seventh in the Nielson SoundScan era. Musgraves received the award for “New Artist of the Year” at 2013’s CMA Awards and also won two Grammy Awards for Best Country Song (“Merry Go ‘Round”) and Best Country Album (“Same Trailer Different Park”). Additionally, Musgraves took home the ACM Award for Album of the Year (“Same Trailer Different Park”). Musgraves recently completed her leg as opening spot on Lady Antebellum’s tour and will join Willie Nelson and Alison Krauss on the road this June.
Katy Perry became a global sensation with her second studio album, “Teenage Dream,” which debuted at Number 1 in eight countries and spent more than two years on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums Chart. She became the only female artist to have five Number 1 singles from one album on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (“California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream,” “Firework,” “E.T.” and “Last Friday Night”). “Roar,” the first single from Perry’s new album, “Prism,” became her tenth Number 1 Top 40 track after debuting at Number 1 on iTunes in 68 countries with 557,024 downloads in its first week of release, the biggest digital song sales week of 2013. Perry’s follow-up single, “Unconditionally”, was released in late 2013, followed by “Dark Horse”, which helped Perry set the record at Top 40 for most total weeks (46) at Number 1 on the Billboard airplay chart. Perry recently kicked off her Prismatic World Tour (which Musgraves will join in August).
