Don Henley Cass County: Deluxe on 180g 2LP
First Solo Album in 15 Years featuring Guest Appearances by Merle Haggard, Miranda Lambert, Mick Jagger, Martina McBride, Jamey Johnson, Alison Krauss, Vince Gill & Dolly Parton!
Don Henley will release Cass County, his fifth studio album and first solo album in 15 years, on Capitol Records in September 2015. Named for the northeastern Texas county in which Henley was raised, Cass County is available here as a 16-track deluxe edition, on 180g double vinyl, with four bonus tracks not included on the standard version.
Cass County was produced by Henley and Stan Lynch, who also co-wrote 11 of the songs on the album, and represents both Henley’s roots and the next stop on his creative journey. “I was born and raised in Texas. I'm a Southerner and a Texan. So this is a natural progression for me. It's who I am and where I come from,” says Henley.
Recorded primarily in Nashville, TN, and Dallas, TX, the album includes guest appearances from Merle Haggard, Miranda Lambert, Mick Jagger, Martina McBride, Jamey Johnson, Alison Krauss, Vince Gill and Dolly Parton. When asked about making the album, Henley exclaimed, “I can truthfully say, I enjoyed making this record more than any record I’ve made in my career because of the people who participated. John Sebastian was dead right in 1965 or 1966 when he wrote that song ‘Nashville Cats.’ It’s still true all these years later. There are some amazing musicians here.”
