“She’s definitely somebody that can sing her butt off,” Young tells The Boot of Pope. “And that was really the defining thing in me wanting to ask her do a duet: She has an amazing voice. She’s an amazing artist.”

Eldredge and Young are both nominated for two awards at the upcoming 2016 ACM Awards: Eldredge will vie for Male Vocalist of the Year and New Male Vocalist of the Year, while Young is hoping to win Album of the Year and Single Record of the Year.
