Lady A and Thomas Rhett have teamed up for a brand new song, paying tribute to some of the country legends who have died in recent times including Kenny Rogers.
Lady A star Charles Kelley co-wrote the song with Rhett, as well as songwriters Jesse Frasure, Julian Bunetta, Sean Douglas and Joe London.
The song begins: "All of my heroes keep dying / Lord, may they rest in peace / So here's to the songs / That will always live on / From now until eternity..."
One lyric in 'Heroes specifically pays tribute to Kenny Rogers: "As a kid I would sing to 'Islands in the Stream,'" regerring to his iconic duet with Dolly Parton from 1983.
'Heroes' is included on the deluxe edition of Lady A's 2019 Ocean album, which is out now.
