Solomon Burke Goes Country
(PR) The King of Rock and Soul-Solomon Burke-completes his 21st Century trilogy of classic music with a 14 song CD of poignant country songs--aptly titled Nashville. Fittingly, the release was produced in Nashville by Grammy®-nominated, revered songwriter, musician and producer Buddy Miller. This collection of earnest, passionate, uplifting, joyous and sometimes mournful tracks will be released on Shout! Factory September 26th, Burke's second recording for the label. Nashville has both the vintage feel of his early recordings melded with his most recent, yet the album is like nothing Burke has ever done before.
On duets with Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris and Patty Loveless, Burke's voice is as masterful and heartrending as on his two most recent critically acclaimed CDs, Shout! Factory's Make Do With What You Got and the Grammy® Award-winning Don't Give Up On Me. The 14 tracks are written by a diverse mix of songwriters including Bruce Springsteen, the aforementioned Parton, previously unreleased songs written by Patty Griffin and Gillian Welch (on which they both contribute background vocals on their respective cuts), as well as producer Buddy and his wife Julie Miller, Tom T. Hall, George Jones, Jim Lauderdale, Don Williams and Kevin Welch, among others.
