Kelsea Ballerini and Kenny Chesney both call Knoxville, TN home. Hailing from the same geographical coordinates makes their collaboration on "Half Of My Hometown" even more charming.

But, how did a drunk text land Kelsea a duet partner? Kelsea shared the story behind her 'bold' ask.

"We had some wine, duh!" laughs the "Hole In The Bottle" singer. "After dinner, I was just like, I am going to text him the demo and like, I don't even have any business having Kenny Chesney's number, but I did. He messaged me the next day and said that he loved it."

The stakes were high, not only is Kenny a mega superstar who happens to be from her hometown, but it's been over ten years since Kenny has agreed to guest on an outside track.
