British singer/songwriter David Gray teamed up with country darling LeAnn Rimes for a new version of his song "Snow in Vegas", a track off of his 2014 LP Mutineers.

In his 7 out of 10 review of David Gray’s Mutineers for PopMatters, Colin McGuire writes, “It’s easy to say that David Gray’s latest set… is the kind of follow-up to 1998’s smash White Ladder for which longtime fans have been waiting some 16 years.”

To kick off the new year, Gray released a new version of the Mutineers number “Snow in Vegas”, where he is joined by LeAnn Rimes in a lovely duet.

Gray explained the collaboration in a Facebook post:

Our collaboration sprang from a chance backstage meeting during my recent US tour. Ever since I recorded the song, I’ve had the feeling that it would work really well as a duet, so when I met LeAnn and the song came up in conversation, I mentioned it to her. To my astonishment she then called up the song on her phone, pressed play and sang along in perfect harmony; I was blown away.
