Jelly Roll has already dropped successful collaborations with the likes of Dustin Lynch, Cody Johnson and Lainey Wilson, but there’s one duet partner he doesn’t want to miss out on working with in his country music career.

The mystery dream duet partner? Garth Brooks.

In an interview with Good Morning America in the midst of CMA Fest, the Need A Favor singer said, “I still wanna record a song with Garth Brooks. I’m still campaigning, like, don’t let my career end without me and Garth getting one in.

“Even if we just sung one together in a show, like, just anything with Garth, you know what I mean?”

Sharing how he’s locked in collaborations in the past, Jelly Roll continued, “You just gotta ask for it, man; that’s what I’ve learned. If you’re just honest with people about what you want, sometimes it happens.”

Being honest about how he feels about Garth Brooks, he quipped: “Garth, we know each other. I love you.”

Brooks has performed duets—particularly live ones—with Trisha Yearwood, Keith Urban, Justin Timberlake, and more.

Earlier this year, Brooks and his wife and country music performer Trisha Yearwood embarked on “their most personal journey yet” in the Friends In Low Places documentary series.

The documentary follows the couple and their friends as they build a honky tonk and bar in Nashville.

“This was so much more than I bargained for,” Brooks commented in a press release. “With that said, what we have built is far more than just a business. This is, by far, the craziest ride I have ever been on.”

In other Jelly Roll news, fellow country music star Kane Brown recently revealed that the pair have been working on a “powerful” new collaboration.

“I have a song with Jelly Roll, so that’s really cool,” Brown said. Digging into the song’s themes, he continued, “It’s talking about depression and, you know, you could have everything in the world, but as long as you don’t talk to someone about it, you’re still gonna go through those things.”

While Brown didn’t reveal when the song would be released, he said it was a “very powerful song” before adding, “I’m blessed to have Jelly on it because he goes through the same thing.”
