It’s not exactly Gill & Oates, but Vince Gill and classic rocker John Oates have collaborated on John’s new single, “Don’t Cross Me Wrong,” set for release on July 16.

John, one-half of the legendary rock duo Hall & Oates, and Vince wrote the tune for John’s current album project, Good Road to Follow.

“Having the chance to write, record and co-produce with Vince Gill was, without a doubt, a highlight in my musical life,” says John. “I’ve been a fan of Vince for years and consider him to be one of the greatest vocalists and guitarists of our time.”

John also remembers that the song was written in Vince’s living room and fell out in quick fashion. “We wrote the song in literally half an hour,” John says.

“It was fun to watch him work and realize why he’s had the great career that he has,” Vince adds. “I love things that take me a little bit out of my element, and maybe that’s what made it fun for him, too.”

We can only imagine!
