If Chris Young hadn't claimed it first, country music trio Lady A could've called its eighth studio album Famous Friends, not What a Song Can Do (out Oct. 22 via Big Machine Label Group). It expands on (and doubles the length of) the group's What a Song Can Do (Chapter One).

Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott's usually stacked list of co-writers includes three top-notch Nashville wordsmiths and recording artists: Ryan Hurd, Thomas Rhett and Natalie Hemby.

Even with those songwriters on board, the real eye-catcher on the tracklist has to be "Friends Don't Let Friends," a collaboration with Rhett, Darius Rucker and the Grand Ole Opry's newest member, Carly Pearce. It'll be Lady A's first true studio collaboration.

"We've rediscovered our purpose, and it's to entertain and spread a positive message - I really truly believe that," Kelley said in a press release. "I want our legacy to be songs that make people feel good. But, I also think there's more to our story that hasn't been written yet."
