Kacey Musgraves has been known to cover Weezer’s “Island in the Sun” at her own concerts, and word must have gotten back around to Rivers Cuomo & Co., because she made a hometown appearance at the band’s show in Nashville last night.

Although Weezer are on tour in support of their recent White Albumthey made room for an old favorite and invited Musgraves onstage for a duet. They didn’t take any half measures, either: Along with a backdrop of palm trees and umbrellas, nearly everyone was wearing leis. Watch fan-shot footage of Musgraves’ surprise performance below.
