Can she get a hallelujah because Maren Morris is about to be taken to church while performing alongside award-winning R&B songstress Alicia Keys at the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards.

The most popular music awards show of the year will be getting all countrified with Morris’ welcoming to the GRAMMY stage on that night, as well as a few more familiar faces hitting the big time among other music colleagues in the industry. Excited to be there as both a nominee and a performer, Morris could not wait to share the big news through Twitter to all of her devoted fans.

“Can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m performing at the #Grammys!! AND I’m gonna collab with my girl @aliciakeys again for this incredibly special night of music. See you through the tv,” she wrote to her followers.

Although listeners may not know it, Keys and Morris have a lot more in common than one may assume. Keys took home the trophy for Best New Artist back in 2002, and Morris is a current nominee in the category with hopes to win. They also performed together for a recent CMT Crossroads special, playing songs of each other while dueting throughout the television performance.

Morris, while nominated under the Best New Artist category, is also up for three other awards throughout the night, including Best Country Album, Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance.

Also set to perform at the GRAMMYs are Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood as well as The Weeknd, Daft Punk, Adele, John Legend, Bruno Mars and many more.

The 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards will air live from Los Angeles on Sunday, February 12, on CBS.
