Don Henley is set to release his first solo in album in 15 years with Cass County coming September 25th on Capitol Records. Mick Jagger and Miranda Lambert each lend their distinctive vocals to Tift Merritt’s “Bramble Rose” which kicks off the album. Henley told interviewer Beverly Keel that he had been a fan the song since he had heard Tift Merritt’s version in the early 2000s. Stan Lynch of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers fame produced the album and co-wrote many of the album’s original songs with Henley. More guest appearances include Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard, Lucinda Williams, Trisha Yearwood, Vince Gill, and Lee Ann Womack. Click HERE for a preview!
“I’m associated with California a lot because of that other band that I play in.” Henley tells Craig Shelburne of Rolling Stone. “but I really and truly was born and raised in Cass County, Texas. I’m a Southerner and a Texan. I have ancestors in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Georgia. So this is a natural progression for me. It’s not me trying to do the ‘Don Henley country album’. It’s who I am and where I come from.”
