Charles Kelley Explains Miranda Lambert Collaboration

(Radio.com) Charles Kelley is no stranger to sharing the microphone with a beautiful woman. After years of bouncing lyrics back-and-forth with Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott, Kelley intended to limit the female collaborations on his new project, Taste of Country reports.

'They both happened so organically," said Kelley of his collaborations with Miranda Lambert and Stevie Nicks, 'and they're both like my favorite two female singers that I said, 'I'm sorry. This has to happen.'"

Nicks appears on a Tom Petty cover of "Southern Accents" and Lambert can be heard on "I Wish You Were Here," written by Jedd Hughes. "I had sang on her second or third record [Revolution], a song we had written called 'Love Song,'" Kelley added. "So I said, 'Not to put any pressure but I'm calling in my favor from you.'"
