So, this will be on repeat for the rest of the day.
Stars & Strings’ artists Jason Aldean and Kelsea Ballerini have a new song out together, ‘First Time Again.’
Jason revealed to CMT that it was Kelsea’s latest #1 hit that really caught his, well, ears! “I had heard her songs and I thought she had a cool voice…But then I heard ‘Peter Pan’ and you could hear vocally what she could do. That was when it kind of turned my head a little bit.”
Hearing her voice on ‘Peter Pan’ also changed his mind on the song.
“We weren’t really planning on that song being a duet when I recorded it originally…My producer Michael Knox and I started talking about it a little bit. We ended up trying to get her in the studio, but she was out on tour with Rascal Flatts. Fortunately, Jay DeMarcus helped us out and recorded her vocals. He sent it to us to mix, so it worked out well.”
We’re glad that this collaboration came to be, because we’re loving it!
Fingers crossed they’ll perform this together at Stars & Strings!
