Carrie Underwood to Duet With Tony Bennett
Carrie Underwood has been tapped to sing with Tony Bennett on his second duets album, according to Hit Fix. The album, titled 'Duets 2' is a follow-up to Bennett's critically acclaimed, 2006 'Duets' album, which earned the then-80-year-old singer two Grammys.
'Duets 2' will be composed of jazz standards, including 'Stranger in Paradise,' which Bennett first recorded in 1955. The legendary crooner will also share the microphone with Amy Winehouse and Josh Groban for the album, which is scheduled to be released in September, a month following Bennett's 85th birthday.
This will be Carrie's second time singing with the pop and jazz legend. In December 2006, she sang 'For Once in My Life' with Bennett, Michael Buble and Josh Groban on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show.' Click here to see that performance.
