Mike and the Moonpies are tippin’ their caps to the great Gary Stewart with their new project, Touch of You – The Lost Songs of Gary Stewart.
Out today, the album features 10 unreleased songs that were written by Gary himself, and features guest vocals from Midland’s Mark Wystrach, Jamie Lin Wilson, Courtney Patton and more.
The band also worked closely with Stewart’s daughter, Shannon Stewart, and best friend Tommy Schwartz to make sure they did it right.
“The music of Gary Stewart has been the driving influence of our band from the first notes we played together,” says frontman Mike Harmeier. “Hearing demos of songs spanning Gary’s entire career was a treat in itself, but getting Shannon Stewart and Tommy Schwartz’s blessing to put our Moonpies twist on these songs is an honor and privilege we’re extremely proud to finally share with everyone.”
Also, a portion of sales from Touch Of You – The Lost Songs of Gary Stewart will go to benefit MusiCares.
