– Vince Gill and Mickey Guyton recorded a song together for a movie.
The pair said they cut "Love Changes Everything" for the movie "American Underdog."
The movie, which comes out on Christmas, is the inspirational story of NFL Hall of Fame quarterback, two-time MVP and Super Bowl Champ Kurt Warner. Five years before he played in the NFL, he was stocking shelves at a supermarket. The film stars Zachary Levi as Warner, Anna Paquin as his wife, Brenda, and Dennis Quaid as St. Louis Rams coach Dick Vermeil.
"Loved being a part of this song," Guyton said on social media.
Gill takes lead vocals on the song with Guyton backing him on harmonies throughout.
"I remember the first time I heard Mickey sing at an industry event," Gill said in a Billboard interview. "I went and introduced myself and told her that someday we'd sing together because I really loved her voice. Finally, that has come true. This great Tom Douglas song is better because of her being a part of it."
Guyton returned the compliment in the Billboard interview. "I've always been such a big fan of Vince's. Beyond his incredible voice and musicianship, no one has a bigger heart for giving back to the community and lifting people up like Vince. For him to ask me to be on 'Love Changes Everything' and to get to work with him on such a beautiful song was just so special."
