During the interview, Ellen brought up how earlier this year Dolly Parton revealed in an interview with Good Morning America that Keith is the performer she’d most like to bake a cake and sing a duet with.

“I’ve always thought that he was one of the most talented — and cutest — guys in the world,” Dolly, 76, said at the time. “I’m not trying to hit on him, because he’s got [wife] Nicole [Kidman] and who could beat that? She’s Jolene.”

When Ellen brought this up, Keith went on to share the story of the first time he met Dolly.

“I come from working-class parents and a rural kind of background in Australia,” Keith started. “And the first time I met Dolly — she’s sung with me a few times — and the first time I met her it was surreal, because, I mean, I grew up singing her songs.”

He added, “As a matter of fact, I sang her songs because I was 9 years old, and my voice hadn’t broken yet, and I sounded like her — I could sing in her key.”

When Ellen asked if he can still sing in Dolly‘s key now, Keith quickly quipped back, “No.”

If you missed it, Dolly will soon be receiving a HUGE honor!
