NEW SUPERGROUP FORMS

Next fall, be on the lookout for a quartet that features three members of the Country Music Hall of Fame and one probable future member. Last week at a concert in San Diego, George Jones announced he'd be touring with Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson and Hank Williams Jr. in the fall, and most likely recording an album with his fellow superstars. The dream team is expected to enter the studio March 10 to record some tracks. No word yet on specific songs, but George, Merle, Willie and Hank are currently working under the group name "The Lost Highwaymen." This isn't the first all-star quartet Willie's been in - he was part of The Highwaymen, which included Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson.
