The two Texas natives Miranda Lambert and Leon Bridges make pretty convincing cases for themselves on their newly-released duet “If You Were Mine.” The country song, which marks Lambert’s first release of the year, imagines everything they’d do to keep love close — from catching stars from the sky to capturing the moon itself.

“I’d memorize you like a scripture/Hang on every word,” Bridges promises before Lambert offers: “I’d make you my whole world/Boy, if I was her.” Closing out the song’s bridge, he adds: “Girl, for what it’s worth.”

“I have been a big fan of Leon for a while because he is very authentic as an artist and I love his music,” Lambert shared in a statement. “I wrote this song with Ashley Monroe and Jesse Frasure specifically with Leon in mind. Since we are both from Texas, we threw in a few Texas references, of course—the Frio River being one.”

She added: “When we finished this song, we sent it to Leon in hopes that he would want to collaborate and we were so glad that he said yes. I have really enjoyed getting to know him and I’m happy to have him as a new friend.”
