Stevie Nicks will be adding harmony vocals to the Lady Antebellum singer’s cover of Tom Petty’s ‘Southern Accents.’

On Wednesday, Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley announced at a private music industry event in Nashville that he would be recording a new version of Tom Petty’s “Southern Accents” (from Petty’s 1985 album of the same name) with Stevie Nicks on harmony vocals. Kelley will head into the studio to record his first solo album after Lady Antebellum wraps up their Wheels Up Tour.

According to Billboard, Kelley said the lyrics of the song reminded him of his father, who sold Bibles to pay his way through medical school.

No release date information for Kelley’s solo album has been announced.
