Andy Grammer‘s gone country!

The popstar is re-releasing his hit single “Honey, I’m Good” as a duet with the Grammy-nominated Eli Young Band – and PEOPLE has the exclusive sneak peek.

The new version adds a Southern twang to the upbeat tune, complete with country-staple instrumentals like a plucky guitar. Eli Young Band frontman Mike Eli joins Grammer on the rousing vocals, exchanging verses throughout the track.

“I always felt this song was country at its core. Being in the studio with the Eli Young Band, I finally got to hear it come home,” Grammer, 31, tells PEOPLE.

Eli says “Honey, I’m Good” makes for a “great country song.”

“We fell in love with it before Andy ever asked us to be part of this release,” the frontman says. “Andy is an incredible singer and one heck of a songwriter so we couldn’t be happier to help expand upon what he’s already accomplished. We can’t wait for everyone to hear the new version.”

The duet is Grammer’s first country release, and Eli Young Band’s first single with their new label, The Valory Music Co.

The new “Honey, I’m Good” hits iTunes on Tuesday and will begin playing on country radio stations nationwide on July 27.
