This is not what I expected, but I’m here for it.

Miranda Lambert has been teasing new music and collaborations coming soon, and today, she announced a new duet with her fellow Texan and soul singer Leon Bridges called “If You Were Mine.”

The song is slated to drop next Tuesday, June 6th, and she shared a teaser over on Instagram. It sounds like a sweet and simple love song featuring two great vocalists, and I can’t wait to hear the whole thing soon:

“Two Texans. One song. June 6.”

Miranda says she’s been a big fan of Leon for a long time, so she actually wrote the song with Ashley Monroe and Jesse Frasure with him in mind.

She was thrilled when he agreed to record it with her, and they became fast friends during the process in the studio with producer Jon Randall in Nashville:

“I have been a big fan of Leon for a while because he is very authentic as an artist and I love his music.

I wrote this song with Ashley Monroe and Jesse Frasure, specifically with Leon in mind. Since we are both from Texas, we threw in a few Texas references, of course – the Frio River being one.

When we finished this song, we sent it to Leon in hopes that he would want to collaborate and we were so glad that he said yes. I have really enjoyed getting to know him and I’m happy to have him as a new friend.”

Leon added that it was “magic” working with Miranda:

“I was humbled to have Miranda ask if I’d join her on this beautiful duet she wrote. Getting in the studio with her in Nashville to sing this song together was magic.

There’s nothing better than two Texans on one mic!”

It’s not the first time Leon has worked with a country artist, either, as he previously teamed up with Luke Combs for an episode of CMT Crossroads, where they performed his 2018 hit “Beyond”:
