DOOBIE BROTHERS TEAM WITH COUNTRY STARS FOR NEW ALBUM!
Posted 2/28/2014 11:23:00 AM
THE DOOBIE BROTHERS WITH MICHAEL MCDONALD RECORD AN ALL-NEW ALBUM OF DOOBIES HITS WITH COUNTRY’S BIGGEST STARS
 
Surprise Nashville Performance at Sony Music Nashville’s Annual Boat Show Set the Stage for the Great Music to Come
 
LOS ANGELES – Friday, February 28– Four-time Grammy winning band the Doobie Brothers with Michael McDonald are teaming up with country’s biggest stars including Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Zac Brown Band, Sara Evans, Chris Young, Jerrod Niemann, Love and Theft, and more to be announced for an album of all-new recordings of the Doobie Brothers’ biggest hits. Releasing later this year on Sony Music Nashville, the album was announced during last week’s Country Radio Seminar at Sony Music Nashville’s annual, invitation-only show aboard the General Jackson Showboat, which treated radio, media, and industry VIPs to a surprise performance by the Doobie Brothers collaborating with album stars Paisley, Evans, and Young. 
The album has come together organically over the last few months with artists picking their favorite Doobie songs and recording them with the Doobies. Many of the artists have performed Doobie Brothers songs live in concert, and Sony Music Nashville label head Gary Overton’s first live concert was a Doobie Brothers show in Phoenix, Arizona, in 1972.
 
Overton shares, “Seeing the Doobie Brothers perform all those years ago was such a thrill for me. I loved their sound, and the enduring appeal and influence of the Doobies runs deep. Artists have been telling me how excited they are to be a part of this project, and that alone speaks volumes about the amazing heritage of music that the Doobie Brothers have created.”
As durable as American steel, Northern California’s four-time Grammy winning Doobie Brothers sound has become part of America’s musical firmament, sampled on dance records, reinterpreted on “American Idol,” and a fixture on radio formats from top 40 to classic rock. They continue to write and record new material and tour the world, boasting one of the most loyal fan bases in music, all while breaking new creative ground. In 2011, the band marked a new chapter, filming a CMT Crossroads special with superstar Luke Bryan, and appearing for the first time ever on the Grand Ole Opry. Their relationship with Nashville continues to unfold with this new project.
