  • This duet between Brad Paisley and Robbie Williams is from the soundtrack of the 2011 computer animated movie, Cars 2. The collaboration came about when the film's director John Lasseter, who runs Pixar, called the American Country artist and asked him if could write a song for the movie with the British pop star. Paisley told Reuters: "It really was out of my comfort zone, more like Led Zeppelin or The Who, but it was really fun."
  • The movie's storyline has the race car, Lightning McQueen, and tow truck, Mater, competing overseas in the first World Grand Prix. Naturally, nothing goes as planned. "The theme of the movie encompasses spies, cars, international intrigue and comedy, which is really a 'Collision of Worlds,' so that's what we called the song," said Paisley.
  • Robbie Williams has been one of the UK's best known Pop stars since the mid 1990s, both as a member of the group Take That and a solo artist. However, he has achieved little success in the States, his best chart placing being the #41 peak for "Angels."
