Heads up, country fans! Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood are about to be up to “Somethin’ Bad.”

The country divas are teaming up for the first time for a duet on Lambert’s fifth album, Platinum, which drops June 3. The collaboration didn’t come easily though — at least not for Lambert, who tells People Country that it took “forever” for her to actually reach out to Underwood.

“To me, this is such a big deal that Carrie and I are singing together,” Lambert reveals in the interview. “It took me forever to write the email to ask her, like I was writing to someone I had a crush on and you don’t want to mess it up.”

Adding to her concerns? Lambert says Underwood didn’t get back to her right away.

“It took a week for her to get back to me and I was telling [husband Blake Underwood], ‘She hates me, she hates the song, she’s never going to talk to me again, she’s probably going to change her email address!’ ” recalls Lambert. “She finally wrote me back and said, ‘I think it’s awesome, let’s do it!’ ”

Lambert, who says she was “so nervous” during studio time with Underwood, explains that the track, “Something Bad,” meshes both their styles — and she’s already got high expectations for the video.

Says Lambert: “I hope [Carrie Underwood will] come to the dark side and we can explode something on video! I want the ‘Before He Cheats’ Carrie!”

So do we!
