Eric Church, Luke Combs, Ashley McBryde, Brothers Osborne and Jamey Johnson are all contributing songs to an album paying homage to John Anderson. The 13-song cover project, called Something Borrowed, Something New: A Tribute to John Anderson, will be released on August 5th. The songs on the album span John's four-decade career.
He said, “Listening to everybody do their own takes on the songs shows how the songs really come through, and I thought to myself, ‘You might have been young and foolish back then, but you sure did pick some good songs.’ It’s very gratifying to know that some things really do not change, and a great country song remains a great country song. Any one person on the record would be a real tribute, but all of them together? It’s a pretty big deal for me personally.”
Taste of Country reports that the project was produced by the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach and Grammy Award-winning engineer David Ferguson.
