Thomas Rhett will join forces with Katy Perry for a live performance of their collaboration, “Where We Started.” It’ll happen during the American Idol finale on Sunday evening (May 22). Rhett wrote in a tweet on Wednesday afternoon (May 18): “So pumped for this. Y'all make plans to tune-in to [American Idol] this Sunday - performing ‘Where We Started’ with [Katy Perry]! #IdolFinale”
The song is the title track of Rhett’s latest album, which debuted on April 1. It’s the first of two albums he plans to release this year, with Country Again: Side B following this fall. Other fan-favorite tracks on the project include “Church Boots,” “Angels,” “Bring The Bar,” “Slow Down Summer” and more. Rhett also included a collaboration with Riley Green (“Half Of Me”) and Tyler Hubbard and Russell Dickerson (“Death Row”).
Fittingly, Rhett recently retweeted a message he shared on May 25, 2013: “Y’all have some pretty funny guilty pleasures. Mine’s [Katy Perry] hands down.” On April 4, Rhett couldn’t help but notice, “this tweet aged well.” Now, he and Perry have teamed up for a duet:
“Windows down and screaming, I will wait for us/ Everybody, just wait for us/ Yeah, we're coming, just wait for us
“Those days when you're brokenhearted/ And you're getting knocked down and you're saying/ Don't know how far we're gonna go, just/ Look at that road and think about where we started”
