duets, ranging from the fun debut single “I Know What You Did” to the
powerful “I Am Woman.” “I Know What You Did,” the most  uptempo fun you
can have with two country legends in under three minutes, shipped to
Country radio last week and is already Play MPE’s #1 download and #1
stream. The album will hit stores July 23, 2013.
