When Brantley Gilbert invited Lindsay Ell to sing the duet part on his latest single, "What Happens In a Small Town," with him, she did not hesitate to accept.

“I was just taken aback from the song," she recalls in a statement from his label. "I mean, I remember listening to it the first time and from a minute in I’m like ‘Wow, this is something really special”.

"And Brantley’s rock side is a place that’s near and dear to my heart, just because I’m such a guitar nerd ever since I was a little girl. And so just to watch all of these worlds kind of fuse together. And duets! I mean, my favorite duets are from artists that you wouldn’t necessarily think of singing a song together. And so I think that’s what makes them special and what makes them cool moments on a record.”
