Ballerini met Evans at the Country Music Channel Awards in Brisbane, Australia.

Last week, E! Online announced that Evans and Ballerini recorded a new song for her upcoming sophomore album. “… he just sang on [the album]. It’s gonna be on the record, and it’s cheesy and I like it.” Ballerini was tight-lipped about the song’s title, saying, “I think it’s gonna end up being the album title, so I’m holding all that. But, yeah, it’ll be there.”

Dishing about the record, Ballerini said, “I feel like it’ll be different but not in a drastic way where anybody feels like I’m trying to change my identity. It’s not like that… My first record, I really wanted it to capture 12-21, so it’s younger and youthful and it’s flirty. This one’s definitely more mature because I’m writing it from 21-23 and my life’s changed a lot. I went through a gross breakup and then I had some growing up discovery years, and then I met Morgan. So I think it captures all of that.”
