Kelly Clarkson to perform two songs on ACM Awards — and Maren Morris wants a mash-up, too

Kelly Clarkson will be pulling double duty at this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards.

The star is set to perform twice on the April 7 telecast: Once with Dan + Shay, on their nominated duet “Keeping Score,” and once with Jason Aldean on their hit 2010 duet “Don’t You Wanna Stay.” That song hit #1 on the country chart and also won the ACM’s Vocal Event of the Year trophy.

And speaking of a vocal event, when Kelly gushed on Twitter about Maren Morris‘ new album, titled Girl, Maren responded with an offer of a collaboration.

“Alright Maren Morris with your new album! Damn! Lovin it!” the original American Idol tweeted. “Y’all need to check out her new album stat!”

Kelly also tweeted that one of the songs on Maren’s album, the sexy “RSVP,” is “my new slow jam.”

To which Maren responded, “Um, can we do a RSVP/Second Wind mashup, my Texas queen?”

Both “The Middle” hitmaker and Kelly are from Texas, and “Second Wind” is a bonus track on Kelly’s 2015 album Piece by Piece — co-written by Maren, incidentally.

You can tune in to watch Kelly sing on the 54th ACM Awards Sunday, April 7 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS, live from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Who knows, maybe she and Maren will manage to squeeze in a duet while she’s at it.
