Watch Katy Perry & Kacey Musgraves Sing "Fireworks," "Follow Your Arrow"

CMT's Crossroads is a concert series that pairs country artists with acts outside the genre to frequently incredible results. Today, incredible footage has surfaced from the taping of the show's 50th episode featuring Kacey Musgraves and Katy Perry.

The two collaborate on Musgraves' hit "Follow Your Arrow" and a stripped-down, twangy version of Perry's "Firework." Perry comes in a little too early on both tracks, starting and stopping "Firework" twice and exclaiming, "I feel like a plastic bag!"

The pop star released a statement on her Prism Tour opening act prior to the taping. "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!”

Watch Katy and Kacey perform "Firework" above and "Follow You Arrow" below.

The episode will air June 13 at 10pm ET on CMT.
