This just in and making me giddy and slightly uncomfortable: CMT’s cross-genre concert series Crossroads is set to pair Taylor Swift and her favorite rock band, Def Leppard. I’ll give you a moment to process the idea of them singing each other’s songs…

And, you’re back. The concert will tape in Nashville in October and premiere on CMT in November.

Taylor is clearly psyched. “Every time I’ve seen Crossroads on CMT I’ve always thought, ‘If I ever get to do one of those, it HAS to be with Def Leppard!,’ so this is really a dream come true for me,” she said in a press release. “I have been screaming the words to Def Leppard songs for years… so it’s amazing that I’m going to get to share a stage with them this year!” So, too, is Def Leppard’s Joe Elliot (pictured), who said, “How cool is this?! Country’s hottest young star wanting to work with us!!”

If you’ve seen the series, what are your favorite moments from it?
