Two Alabama Tribute Albums Planned for Release
From Jason Aldean to Jason Isbell.
You read that headline correctly. There are two separate albums coming soon that focus on the legendary country band Alabama, and the artists participating are as diverse as Luke Bryan and Lucero, or Jason Aldean and Jason Isbell.
The second album is High Cotton: A Tribute to Alabama, which arrives Sept. 17. This collection leans much more toward the Americana and bluegrass worlds and includes the talents of Memphis rockers Lucero (“The Closer You Get”), beloved string band Old Crow Medicine Show (“Dixieland Delight”), Texas favorite Wade Bowen with songwriter Brandy Clark (“Love in the First Degree”) and much more.
Sounds pretty cool, right? We’ll get to debate about who does a better “Old Flame,” Rascal Flatts or Jason Isbell with The Civil Wars’ John Paul White. Meanwhile, you can catch Randy and the boys on their 40th Anniversary Tour through November.
