Well, this sure isn't how I thought it woulda' went down. I thought Miranda and Carrie were having a girls night, painting eachother's toes, sippin' on wine and telling stories about Blake and Mike and then all of the sudden mutually agreed to do a song together….turns out…I was wrong.
Miranda told PEOPLE: "To me, this is such a big deal that Carrie and I are singing together," Lambert, 30, tells PEOPLE Country. "It took me forever to write the email to ask her, like I was writing to someone I had a crush on and you don't want to mess it up."
AND to make it worse Carrie's response wasn't exactly instant!
"It took a week for her to get back to me and I was telling Blake, 'She hates me, she hates the song, she's never going to talk to me again, she's probably going to change her email address!' " Lambert jokes to PEOPLE. "She finally wrote me back and said, 'I think it's awesome, let's do it!' "
The musician continues, "When she came in the studio I was writing to Blake, 'I'm in over my head, I don't know what I've done!' When you respect someone like that you get so nervous. To hit the notes she hits, I would have to take off running and jump as high as I could."
However, the pairing works. "This song meshes our styles – it's a great match of what she does and what I do," Lambert explains. "I hope she'll come to the dark side and we can explode something on video! I want the 'Before He Cheats' Carrie!"
That's what I'm talking about! Screw the Bro-Country, let's get some Wo-Country going up in here!
