Florida Georgia Line have revealed that Carrie Underwood passed up their offer to collaborate together.
American country music duo Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line took to social media in February to request Carrie's presence on one of their upcoming songs.
They said: "Whether you know it or not, we are huge fans of you and we have always wanted to do a song with you."
Tyler then mentioned a tune the pair had recently composed with singer-songwriter Julia Michaels, saying: "We'd really love for Carrie Underwood to hear this song.

"We think it would be a massive collaboration. We'd love to send it to you. We don't have your email or your phone number, so we're gonna just play a little."
Carrie did not get in touch over the tune – but may not have even seen the request if Florida Georgia Line didn't manage to make proper contact.
However, during a CMT Hot 20 Countdown, Brian and Tyler said Carrie had "declined" a duet.

Tyler said: "No, we got turned down on that one. You don't win 'em all. I guess she didn't love it as much as we did, but that's alright. We got turned down, we got turned down.
"I think she said it was amazing and she'd love to, but it was right around her book tour release and so she was super busy and didn't really have time.
"But who knows, who knows where it will go. Now it's just open game."
