Chris Young is packing his bags for another trip across the pond following his first visit to the UK and Ireland in early 2013 for the CMA Songwriters Series.

The Doobie Brothers have teamed up with Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Zac Brown Band, Sara Evans, Chris Young, Jerrod Niemann, Love and Theft and more for an album of all-new recordings of the band’s biggest hits. The album, set to be released later this year, was announced during Country Radio Seminar at Sony Music’s invitation-only show aboard the General Jackson Showboat which included a surprise performance by the Doobie Brothers with Brad Paisley, Sara Evans and Chris Young.

Many of the artists featured on the project have covered Doobie Brothers songs during their live shows. Ironically, Song Music Nashville label head Gary Overton’s first concert was a Doobie Brothers show in Phoenix in 1972. Continue Reading
