Paisley mentioned that Kelly plays, ‘a very convincing elephant,’ with Kelly thanking him and saying she, ‘tried my hardest.’
When Paisley asked what it’s like recording the voice work, Kelly said, ‘it’s really fun and you have to be not scared to be silly because it’s very awkward.’
‘This was my first time doing voice over work, so thankfully I had our amazing director Garth Jennings, who is just like a kid at heart,’ Kelly said.
She said it was similar to being in a ‘recording booth recording a song,’ but it differed because there is a lot of ‘repetition.’
The singer added that they don’t see any of the footage and the director is just ‘explaining everything to them.’
‘They’re like, “OK this scene you’re like falling down a hole, so I need you to make noises while you’re faling.” I’m like, “Well, I’ve never fallen down a hole before, so I imagine it would sound like this,’ she said.
She added that you, ‘just try things and it’s really awkward and weird but they somehow make it sound great.’
When Paisley asked where she was when she heard about her Grammy nominations, Kelly revealed she was, ‘not expecting it at all.’
She added that, ‘Dolly Parton and all these legends’ are nominated alongside her, and that when her publicist called, she, ‘didn’t even know why she was calling.’
‘I didn’t even know that the nominations were being announced that day,’ with Paisley saying, ‘that’s the best way’ to get the news.
The singer’s A Tori Kelly Christmas is nominated for Album of the Year and Traditional Pop Vocal Album.
The Grammy Awards will be held Sunday, January 31 at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
