The Doobie Brothers All-Star Country Album Track Listing Revealed
The Doobie Brothers have announced the complete track list for their new all-star country album ‘Southbound,’ as well as a rundown of which popular Nashville performers they’ll be joining on each track.
As revealed on Rolling Stone, the record reigns in some of country music’s biggest names including Blake Shelton (‘Listen To The Music,’) Toby Keith (‘Long Train Runnin”) and the Zac Brown Band (‘Black Water’) to name a few.
‘Southbound’ is not going to be your run-of-the-mill tribute album, however. Rather than the participating artists performing all aspects of the music themselves, the Doobie Brothers, including former vocalist Michael McDonald, will be re-recording the music to accompany their guest vocalists.
“Country has changed since the days of Hank Williams,” the Doobie Brothers’ Tom Johnston tells Rolling Stone. “It’s taken on a rock tinge. Truthfully, the traditional style of rock & roll has kind of gone away. No one is representing it the way it used to be represented. Country music has sort of picked up the slack. That’s why those artists are huge right now.”
‘Southbound’ is due for release on Nov. 4.
