The audience at Ascend Amphitheater was treated to a rare collaboration on the track which originally appeared on Weezer’s 2001 self titled album, also referred to as “the green album.” Musgraves has covered the song as part of her own live set for years.

“The very talented @spaceykacey joined us onstage for a proper Nashville rendition of “Island” tonight,” the band wrote in an Instagram post. “Thanks so much Kacey!! #nashville.”

“Thanks for havin me up tonight in Nashville, @Weezer!!” Musgraves tweeted, posting a short clip of the performance.
