Set your TVs — LeAnn Rimes is ready to talk, and she’ll be on the small screen with Katie Couric twice.

Over the weekend, the 30-year-old country superstar told her Twitter fans about her Los Angeles taping.

“Picking out my outfit for my interview with Katie Couric tonight. So sweet of her to come to LA because I could make NYC this week,” Rimes wrote.

“She’s such a great lady!” she later added.

Couric echoed with equally positive comments about her guest, who will be featured on an upcoming episode of her talk show Katie and a special Nashville edition of 20/20.

“Thanks, LeAnn, for a great interview!” Couric, 55, wrote on Twitter.

This will be Rimes’ first TV interview since checking herself into a 30-day in-patient treatment facility to deal with anxiety and stress.

Earlier this month, the “How Do I Live” songstress opened up to the Boston Herald about her treatment.

“I’ve been in therapy my whole life . . . I like going. I like being able to have that third-party input and someone to listen that has nothing to do with your life,” Rimes told the paper.

“Everyone has an opinion of how I am and how I should be, and now I’m focusing on how I want to be.”

Rimes entered treatment in August after receiving nasty messages on Twitter. The singer later filed a lawsuit in California, claiming that two women, identified as Kimberly and Lexi Smiley, had harassed Rimes on Twitter and illegally recorded a phone call and posted it on the internet.
