Can you imagine hearing Katy Perry singing "Follow Your Arrow" instead of Kacey Musgraves ? It turns out Kacey almost co-wrote that song with Katy for possible inclusion on the pop star's latest album, PRISM .

Kacey came up with the idea for the chorus to "Follow Your Arrow" while writing a letter to a friend who was moving away. She tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch , "I gave her a little arrow necklace, and on the card I wrote a dumb little poem. It said something about following your arrow and kissing lots of boys and having fun. But I saved the idea because I thought it would make a really great song.”

Shortly after writing that letter, Kacey had a songwriting meeting with Katy Perry.

Says Kacey, "When I played the idea, Katy said, ‘That sounds like something you’d really be great at. I think you should keep it for yourself.’ I’m really glad I did."

"Follow Your Arrow" is included on Kacey's Grammy-winning album, Same Trailer Different Park . Starting in August, Kacey is set to open select dates on Katy's Prismatic World Tour.
