Turn The Beat Around: Album of the Month

Don Henley’s new album ‘Cass Country’ is the featured Album of the Month on Ian Arbuckle’s Turn The Beat Around programme on 100.8 Revival FM on Wednesday nights and Saturday afternoon plus Catch Up anytime.

Don Henley’s Cass County is his fifth studio album and first solo album in 15 years and was released in late September 2015.

Named for the northeastern Texas county in which Henley was raised, Cass County is available as a 12-song standard CD and digital album as well as a 16-track deluxe version, which will be available on CD, digitally and a double disc, 180 gram Vinyl LP.

Cass County was produced by Don Henley and Stan Lynch, who also co-wrote 11 of the songs on the album, and represents both Henley’s roots and the next stop on his creative journey. “I was born and raised in Texas. I’m a Southerner and a Texan. So this is a natural progression for me. It’s who I am and where I come from” says Don Henley.

Recorded primarily in Nashville, Tennessee and Dallas, Texas, the album includes guest appearances from Merle Haggard, Miranda Lambert, Mick Jagger, Martina McBride, Jamey Johnson, Alison Krauss, Vince Gill and Dolly Parton. When asked about making the album, Henley exclaimed: “I can truthfully say, I enjoyed making this record more than any record I’ve made in my career because of the people who participated. John Sebastian was dead right in 1965 or 1966 when he wrote that song ‘Nashville Cats.’ It’s still true all these years later. There are some amazing musicians here.”

Turn The Beat Around presented by Ian Arbuckle on 100.8 Revival FM and online, Wednesdays 8.00-10.00pm and Saturdays 3.00-5.00pm and Catch Up anytime plus Radioplayer Catchup.
