» Miranda Lambert To Hit The Studio With Don Henley
Don Henley is releasing a solo country album that will have duets from Miranda Lambert and Lee Ann Womack on it.
Don says the album, ‘Cass County’ was “recorded mostly in Nashville, with some additional recording done in Texas and California. The material on it is a reflection of a part of my musical foundation — songs I heard on the radio and on my parents’ record player in the ’50s and ’60s. It’s not exactly a ‘retro’ album, but neither does it reflect much of what’s going on in ‘modern’ music.”
In an interview, Miranda told Cleveland.com that’s what drew her to the project. “Most of my influence truly came from my parents. While growing up, my dad played guitar and wrote some songs, and there was always music in our house. Mostly Merle Haggard, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn. My mom loved Aretha Franklin, and we had tons of R&B mixed in with that, too.”
