SCATTER RECORDS and the BIG MACHINE LABEL GROUP (BMLG) have teamed up for the FEBRUARY 8th release of a star-studded tribute compilation honoring the late Country great WAYLON JENNINGS. Distribution and promotion of the SCATTER RECORDS release will be handled by THE VALORY MUSIC CO., of the BIG MACHINE LABEL GROUP.
The three volume album, “The Music Inside: A Collaboration Dedicated To WAYLON JENNINGS,” features WAYLON songs re-recorded by artists like KRIS KRISTOFFERSON, ALABAMA, JAMEY JOHNSON, TRACE ADKINS, SUNNY SWEENEY, PATTY GRIFFIN, as well as WAYLON’s widow JESSI COLTER and son SHOOTER JENNINGS. Every performance on the compilation was given JESSI and SHOOTER’s blessing.
SHOOTER said: “There have been several tribute albums made in my father's honor, all of which were great tributes to his legacy. But this one has been a true passion project for a lot of artists and friends who truly wanted to remember and give back to the wonderful man he was. In the years since my dad passed away, I've grown as an artist and I feel this is the first time I've been able to give back truly to the man who inspired, influenced and nurtured me and my musical passion.”
ALABAMA reunited for the recording of “Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way,” which is the lead single from Vol. 1, impacting Country radio on NOVEMBER 29th with an official add date of DECEMBER 13th. A preview of the new song and more info on the tribute album can be found at www.WaylonJennings.com.
