After the tweet the two got in touch with each other and have even written a song together, as well as taping an episode of CMT’s “Crossroads” earlier this year. “I brought some ideas, and we actually ended up writing a pretty cool song,” Musgraves says. “It’s loosely based on Dorothy’s version of The Wizard of Oz, her being in love with the Tin Man, but he didn’t have a heart. And hopefully maybe something will happen with it down the road. Either way, it’s cool to step out of my zone and write for somebody else.”
