Michael Buble knows exactly who would make a good duet partner, and he wasn't afraid to ask. The Canadian crooner has reached out to actress Reese Witherspoon, and she's agreed to record a song with him.
"By all accounts it would be true," the "Save the Last Dance for Me" singer, 37, said of working with Witherspoon, 36, on his next album. "I just really am a big fan and so myself and my camp, we wanted to do this with her and we were thrilled that she was excited about it, too."
Witherspoon took voice lessons and impressed critics with her unforgettable Walk the Line role as June Carter Cash, the performance that earned her an Academy Award.
Although the movie came out seven years ago, Witherspoon's singing on such Carter classics as "Wildwood Flower" and "Juke Box Blues" for the film's soundtrack made audiences wonder when she would follow in Gwyneth Paltrow's footsteps with more musical performances. Buble must have had similar thoughts to ask the mother of three to duet with him.
Buble's upcoming studio, his sixth to date, is scheduled for release some time in 2013.
