Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelly is speaking about getting the chance to perform with Stevie Nicks at Sunday night's Academy of Country Music Awards.  Kelly says it was Stevie herself who dreamed up their collaboration. 

Nicks joined the country trio on stage to perform the title track off their most recent album Golden. Charles called the Fleetwood Mac singer inspiring, describing the opportunity to share the stage with Nicks at the ACM Awards as one of the most special things for them in their career "by far."

It's not the first time Stevie has teamed up with Lady Antebellum.  They joined forces last September for an episode of "CMT Crossroads."
