In maybe the most surprising collaboration ever (well, in a while), country music icon Jason Aldean and country music breakout star Kelsea Ballerini have teamed up to record a duet called “First Time Again” for Jason’s upcoming record, They Don’t Know.
“[This song] was actually something I was going to cut on my own, we really didn’t have a plan for it to be a duet,” Jason said in an interview with iHeartRadio. “The more we kind of got to listening to it, we thought it could probably set up that way, so we started thinking about people, you know… And Kelsea’s one of those who’s off to a great start. She’s really early in her career, first album, but she’s off to a really great start, having some big songs, and, you know, I love her voice, I think she’s got a great voice.”
The song, which is set to release with the album September 9, promises to be a hit.
