The country music stars are revealing details about who their dream duet partners would be.
When given the option to choose any artist to team up with, some singers opted for other country music artists, while others chose pop stars or late crooners.
Jessie James DeckerDierks Bentley and other stars spoke with Fox News Digital about who their ideal duet partner would be and why.
“OK, ultimate duet partner? I’d say probably Jimi Hendrix, but someone alive, probably Chris Martin from Coldplay,” singer Lindsay Ell said.
“I love how Chris takes genres and takes them to such a crazy world stage, and so I think musically and production-wise, we could just create something amazing,” she explained. .
Jordan Davis said he would have loved to work with one of his idols in the music industry – the late Jean Prine.
Prine died in 2020 of complications from coronavirus at the age of 73.
“Ultimate duet partner, oh John Prine,” Davis said. “John Prine is the reason I fell in love with songwriting. He’s the best songwriter that ever lived in my opinion, so that would be John Prine.”
Prine has written many hit songs throughout his illustrious career as a singer-songwriter, including “You Never Even Called Me By My Name”, “Angel From Montgomery”, “Hello In There” and “In Spite of Ourselves”.
Bentley, who has worked with many of the top musicians in the industry throughout his career, also chose a late idol.
“You know, I had so many great partners. I got to sing with Alison Krauss, I did a live duet with Taylor Swift. It was pretty cool,” Bentley said. “I’m a huge Frank Sinatra fan, so he would probably be the guy.”
Tyler Hubbard’s dream collaboration would be a country-pop crossover with former boy band member Justin Timberlake.
“Ooh, ultimate duet partner. I just thought of Justin Timberlake all of a sudden,” Hubbard said. “I don’t know why, but I think it would be fun to collaborate with him.”
Timberlake has previously collaborated with fellow country star, Chris Stapleton. The two teamed up for the 2018 song “Say Something” and their 2013 duet “Drink You Away.”
Decker is one of the lucky few in the industry who can say she’s already worked with her dream duet partner, having released a single with him just two weeks ago.
She hopes she and Billy Currington will be back in the CMA prices next year as nominees for their collaboration on the song “I Still Love You.”
“My ultimate duet partner is my partner right now on a duet I just launched two weeks ago, it’s called ‘I Still Love You’ with Billy Curringtonmy favorite artist,” Decker told Fox News Digital on the CMAs red carpet.
“He’s had 13 No. 1 songs. He’s my favorite singer in this town, and being able to sing with him, put out a video, I manifest we’ll be celebrating that single here next year this time.”
