Sometimes TV guest appearances just seem meant to be. Case in point, country singer/songwriter Kelsea Ballerini will guest-star as herself on the May 4 episode of ABC's Nashville.

In the episode, called “The Trouble With the Truth,” Ballerini performs her latest single “Peter Pan,” from her album The First Time on Black River Entertainment. The artist recently performed that song, and “Love Me Like You Mean It,” together with Nick Jonas at the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 3. Extra hosts Mario Lopez and Charissa Thompson also take guest turns as themselves in the same ep.

"I've watched Nashville since it came out and have always loved the story it tells, and more than anything, the music it shows,” Ballerini says. “I'm so excited to be a part of this episode!”
