Jon Pardi is scheming for a country collaboration.

The CMA New Artist of the Year tells CMT’s Cody Alan that he’s planning a duet with none other than Miranda Lambert.

Jon reveals he recorded a song for his next album that Miranda wrote, and he’s hoping to convince her to sing on it.

“I’m working on it, but we did shake hands. You know Miranda—she’s a Texan. A handshake goes a long way. There might be some collab on the next record,” Jon says. “I’m really excited.”

While the “Heartache on the Dance Floor” singer clarifies that the collaboration is “not yet” official, he’s hoping “to really talk her into it” when he and Miranda tour together on the Livin’ Like Hippies Tour in 2018.

The trek kicks off January 18 in Greenville, South Carolina.
