The Big Easy will be getting a big star soon on FX's American Horror Story: Coven. Co-Creator Ryan Murphy revealed in a tweet this morning that Stevie Nicks will be joining the cast later this season.

It's pretty much the best guest star Murphy could have on his wildly popular show based in New Orleans, as he's been setting up a large Fleetwood Mac presence through Coven. Lila Lily Rabe's hippie and witchy Misty Day character has an obsession with the iconic singer, and about eight of Nicks' songs will be used throughout this season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"When we got to this witch idea, I thought, if you’re Misty and you have grown up alone and you don’t know any other witches, there’s one witch you probably would know and that’s Stevie Nicks," Murphy explained. "So I called Stevie Nicks and first I said, 'I want to use you in the show.’ But she was very resistant because from the beginning of her career people who are in the Wiccan community had given her a hard time thinking she was a witch and she got a lot of scary fan letters. She didn’t like the darkness of that, and I explained to her the part and she’s like, 'Aw f—, let’s just do it. OK, I love it.'"

E! Online was told by a source that Nicks will come on the show to visit her biggest fan and possibly sing. We are getting goosebumps! This isn't Murphy's first display of fandom for the singer as he dedicated a Glee tribute to Fleetwood Mac in 2011.

We're looking forward to seeing what's next for American Horror Story as the frightfest has recently been renewed for a fourth season.
