Kelly Clarkson is going country -- in the world of TV fiction!

Kelly will be playing herself on an upcoming episode of ABC's 'Nashville,' Radio.com reports. She will also perform on the hit drama, singing the '90s pop hit 'Fade Into You.'

She will perform the 'Mazzy Star' tune alongside characters Gunnar (Sam Palladio) and Scarlett (Clare Bowen), who memorably sang the same song together in the show's first season. Kelly has covered it live herself, performing it a concert in Charlotte, N.C., last year.

"This song happens to be a song ... I know you all have these, your repeat songs that you just listen to hypnotically on repeat over and over," Kelly said by way of its introduction. "This is that song for me."

Having just wed the son of the legendary Reba McEntire, Kelly just keeps getting deeper and deeper into the country community. What do you think, PopCrushers? Are we going to lose our original 'American Idol' to the country music genre?
