Country singer Brandi Carlile had a rude awakening during the recording of her latest album - she received an early morning phone call from SIR Elton John agreeing to duet with her on a track.
The star teamed up with the Rocket Man to sing Caroline on last year's (09) record, Give Up the Ghost.
Carlile had approached Sir Elton's management to ask the star to sing on the album - and was shocked when the man himself contacted her.
She says, "The very next morning he called me and said he would do it. It was a lovely phone call to be wakened by but also pretty terrifying.
"He did this amazing piano piece in the very first take. It was incredible, no-one else could have played it like that."
