Country Artists Join Doobie Brothers Tribute Album

It’s been quite a good run for country/rock tributes between the pair of Alabama releases last year, John Fogerty’s Wrote a Song for Everyone and all the love coming Merle Haggard’s way, most imminently with the new Working Man’s Poet compilation out April 1. Up next on the list is The Doobie Brothers, whose own country-centric tribute collection is in the works.

The popular rock band, known for hits like “Listen to the Music” and “Black Water,” will re-record some of its best-known hits with such country artists as Brad Paisley, Sara Evans, Toby Keith and Zac Brown among others. Founding Doobies members Tom Johnston and Pat Simmons are on board, as well as John McFee and singer Michael McDonald. Producer David Lyndon Huff, brother of Nashville-based Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban producer Dann Huff, is overseeing the project.

There’s no word on a track list or official release date just yet, but Sony Music plans to have it out later in 2014.
