Country trio Lady A will round out their What a Song Can Do collection with a full album, scheduled for this fall. The What a Song Can Do album includes the seven songs found on What a Song Can Do (Chapter 1), plus seven more.

Look for What a Song Can Do at digital retailers and stores on Oct. 22. The 14-song project features one massive collaboration: “Friends Don’t Let Friends” includes Carly Pearce, Thomas Rhett and Darius Rucker, artists who Charles Kelley and company have worked with previously in a variety of ways, and close friends of the group.

Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood had a hand in writing 13 of the 14 songs, with the exception being the instant grat track, “Where Would I Be.” One song — "Workin’ on This Love" — was penned solely by Haywood and is described as a poem for his wife, Kelli. Dann Huff returns to produce What a Song Can Do.
