FIRST PHOTO: Sheryl Crow Kisses & Tells on Cougar Town

Sheryl Crow has caught the acting bug -- and getting to kiss a hunky TV star didn't help! The singer is set to appear in a recurring role on Cougar Town, which stars her pal Courteney Cox, beginning in March.

"I play a woman named Sara in her 40s who's a wine dealer," Crow tells PEOPLE. "I don't want to give too much away but there's a little romance with Grayson (Josh Hopkins, pictured), who lives across the street from Jules, which is Courteney's character. Jules and Grayson have always had a sort of unspoken thing for each other."

Does that mean there will be a catfight over serial dater Grayson? "I don't know if I can give it away," Crow says with a laugh.

She did dish, however, on smooching Hopkins. "He's a good kisser," she says. "But it's always weird kissing somebody when there are 3,000 around."

But Crow had a plan for getting over her nerves -- rip it like a Band Aid! "The first day I walked in and I saw Josh and I said, 'Okay, kiss me! Let's get it over with."

And so they did: "Yeah. I said let's get it over with," she says. "No surprises."

Cougar Town airs Wednesdays (9:30 p.m. EST) on ABC. --Marisa LaudadioAdam Larkey/ABC
