Kesha will guest star as herself on ABC country-music drama NASHVILLE on May 11 at 10 p.m. PEOPLE has shared an exclusive first look at the appearance - check it out at left!

According to the site, in the episode, Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) reunites with her Shenandoah Girl costar Noah West (Derek Hough) on the Oscar campaign trail and meets Kesha.

About the show: Acclaimed country-music drama "Nashville" has returned for a fourth season-with more jaw-dropping, heartbreaking moments than ever before.

Season Three concluded with the ultimate cliffhanger-a flatline-as Deacon went under the knife to receive a liver transplant from his sister, Beverly. And when all is said and done, Rayna must learn to negotiate professional demands in the face of unthinkable personal tragedy. After the birth of her daughter Cadence, Juliette began to suffer from worsening postpartum depression and consequently recommitted to her music and movie careers-a choice that will cause her professional life to sizzle but her family life to fizzle. Her husband Avery, meanwhile, must determine how-and where-to raise their baby girl. Rayna's teenage girls, Maddie and Daphne, grapple with growing pains of their own, knowing they have different fathers-one of whom (Deacon) may die in surgery and the other of whom (Teddy) is headed to prison.

Elsewhere, cowboy Luke Wheeler has recruited superstar Juliette Barnes to be on his record label-a timely boon, considering his biggest artist, Will Lexington, came out publicly at a press conference to the surprise of the whole industry. Scarlett and Gunnar, who together comprise musical duo The Exes, still remain exes as they embark on tour for their latest E.P., but their chemistry-both onstage and off-might soon be too powerful for them to deny. And Jeff Fordham, Rayna's nemesis, continues to be romantically enmeshed with Highway-65 artist Layla Grant, the only person who can see the good in him but whom he always manages to hurt-whether he means to or not.

This season will see "Nashville's" singers, songwriters and superstars struggle to reconcile their public and private realities. Some will fight to climb to-or stay on-the top. Some will succumb to their own ambition. And all will learn how to survive in the wake of loss-proving that music may be at the heart of Music City, but drama always reigns.

"Nashville" stars Connie Britton as Rayna Jaymes, Hayden Panettiere as Juliette Barnes, Clare Bowen as Scarlett O'Connor, Chris Carmack as Will Lexington, Will Chase as Luke Wheeler, Charles Esten as Deacon Claybourne, Jonathan Jackson as Avery Barkley, Sam Palladio as Gunnar Scott, Maisy Stella as Daphne Conrad, Lennon Stella as Maddie Conrad and Aubrey Peeples as Layla Grant.
