Two-time Grammy Award-winner Kacey Musgraves will perform at next month's GLAAD Media Awards in New York City, making her the first country music artist to perform at the annual event.

GLAAD announced Friday that openly gay country music artist Chely Wright will introduce Musgraves at the 25th annual GLAAD Media Awards on May 3.

In the hit single Follow Your Arrow, Musgraves encourages fans to “love who you love.”

“I think it's definitely time for [gay] issues to be accepted in country music,” she said during a interview last year. “Regardless of your political beliefs, everybody should be able to love who they want to love and live how they want to live.”

Musgraves has also taken a stand against bullying, joining last year's Spirit Day.
