In a recent interview with Everything Nash, Hoot shared how the collaboration came together.

“When we wrote it, I said, ‘I think this would be awesome if we got Kelly to sing on this,’” he shared with the publication. “When I was on The Voice, she said, ‘Hey, let’s do something together.’ So I sent it to her, and didn’t hear anything. And then later on in the year, when we were seriously considering putting this on the album,  I said, ‘You know what? I’m just going to text her again,’ because I had to ask her a couple of questions about other things.”

Finally, when he was able to reach her, she said that she never had a chance to hear the song when he originally sent it. Once she heard it, Clarkson was all-in. 

“She called me back immediately and she said, ‘I want to shout this from the rooftops. Yes, I’m in,” Hoot explained. “Like, let’s get this done. And so trying to coordinate her incredibly busy schedule with mine, recording everything and then also a wedding coming up and then having to fly to LA to record, or having to send stuff out there, it just all worked perfectly.”

Hoot also gave fans a look at the upcoming “I Would’ve Loved You” music video with a set of behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot. 

“I guess you could say that we had a great time making this music video! So grateful to @kellyclarkson for being a part of this one,” he captioned the post. 

“I Would’ve Loved You” is the lead single from Hoot’s debut EP, Love Out Of Time. The five-song project is set to release on January 27 and finds the rising country singer teaming up with an impressive lineup of musicians and songwriters, including Dean Sams (Lonestar), Myrick, Jenne Fleenor (CMA Award-winning musician), Dave Pahanish (Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Toby Keith), Jamie Floyd (Ingrid Andress, Lucie Silvas, Ashley Monroe) and more.
