Henley & Heartbreaker Go Country

Don Henley counts Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers as one of his favorite bands.  Past Henley  collaborations with members of the Heartbreakers have produced some of Henley's biggest songs.  Boys Of Summer, a demo Mike Campbell worked up, got passed along to Henley. Several songs on End Of The Innocence were joint efforts between Henley and Stan Lynch.  Now comes word that the Eagle and Lynch are working together on a Country flavored album.  Lynch, who is close enough to Henley to be the godfather of his son, is someone Don considers a fellow '...quasi-redneck' and someone who is '...amazingly gifted and has a killer sense of humor.' Speaking with Diablo Magazine, Henley said that Lynch is co-producing his next solo project, which he describes as a collection of original and covers of Country songs.  He also volunteered that he would like to work with Randy Newman, Alison Kraus, Merle Haggard and Keb Mo, and that he counts Levon Helm as his favorite drummer-vocalist of all time.
