Brad Paisley is well versed in the Rolling Stones‘ catalog and has shared the stage with the band several times over the years, so it comes as no surprise that the singer enlisted Mick Jagger for a collaboration on his latest release, Love and War.

The rollicking “Drive of Shame” features Jagger’s familiar vocals while Paisley stands in for bandmate Keith Richards on guitar.

“I’ve been ripping the Rolling Stones off with every song I write in some form or another,” Paisley tells Rolling Stone. “We’re all ripping them off, every artist who’s ever played anything near what they do.”

Paisley said the two singers decided to write about places they could be when enacting a “Drive of Shame.”

“Everybody talks about the walk of shame, but you’re probably getting in the car at the end of that, so we decided to write about various places that might happen,” Paisley says. “For him, it’s Rodeo Drive, for me, Vegas works really well.”

Jagger came to Paisley’s home studio in Tennessee to write and record the song. Paisley¬†says he made sure to leave the vocal booth while Jagger was “capturing the moment” in the studio.

“You just clear out the vocal both to where he’s not going to ricochet off the walls in there, like bumper cars,” he says. “And you try not to freak out the first time [his voice comes] through your speakers and [he sounds] like every record you ever grew up playing.”
