Katy's goin' country.
It's been a minute since we've heard from Miss Perry. Aside from the occasional performance in support of Hillary Clinton, Katy's mostly been keeping quiet on the music front.
If you're like me and you've been yearning for some more Katy in your life, you're in luck. The "Roar" singer is returning to the stage on April 3rd to perform at the Academy of Country Music Awards. She will be joining country music legend Dolly Parton for a special duet, in addition to presenting the iconic country singer with the Tex Ritter Award for her TV movie "Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors".
Both ladies took to social media to announce the news, with Dolly calling Katy "amazing and oh so talented" and the pop superstar showing her excitement tweeting : "MY PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED?? I shall remember though that I am but one sequin on this living legend's costume!"

No word yet on what song the pair will perform together, but we will definitely be seeing a new side of Katy who has yet to dabble in country music.
The ACMs will air on CBS at 8 pm EST.
