Speaking of their upcoming performance, the 32-year-old songstress added: "Just to be able to come together and have a real moment with somebody that you've gotten to know – it's not just a collaboration out of nowhere – it's going to be fun."

The former No Doubt lead has embedded herself in the country music scene thanks to her 2021 marriage to Blake, with the two even having collabbed on country-leaning projects together.
