The classic rock veterans are collaborating with Zac Brown, Toby Keith, Chris Young, Love and Theft and more for a country tribute album
As everyone knows, I am not a fan of country music...and not that I would want to "
jinks" "jinx" this interesting news of course...but this gets me somewhat excited. Being a huge fan of "classic rock"...The Doobie Brothers are right up there on my list of my favorites all time. Of course, China Grove, Listen to the music, Taking it to the Streets and What a Fool Believes are on shuffle on my ipod. But clearly The Doobie Brothers had a slight "country" feel..or may a little "Bluegrass" sound to some of their music.
Now again, IF ONLY....orb doesn't now "wiggle" his way onto this...now that I've posted this on the "cynic's" board! HA! I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
It's also cool that Michael McDonald is involved. Thought his "era" of the band was great. But I'm slightly partial to the "original sound". It will simply be interesting to see which songs the country acts will contribute to. As "China Grove" is my favorite of theirs...I'm now anticipating who will be on that recording.
