When you’re talking about an iconic band like the Rolling Stones, it’s not hard to see their influence as spread across all genres of music, country music included. Dolly Parton even said she’s always wanted to cover “Satisfaction” with Mick Jagger.
So, if you want a damn good Rolling Stones cover album, look no further than Blackberry Smoke’s Stoned.
But… there is another one in the works… a collaborative project featuring a ton of country stars.
Titled Stoned Cold Country, the tribute album will honor the 60th anniversary of the legendary rock band, and feature performances from Jimmie Allen, Brooks & Dunn, Brothers Osborne, Eric Church, Steve Earle, Elle King, Marcus King, Little Big Town, Ashley McBryde, Maren Morris, Elvie Shane, Koe Wetzel, The War And Treaty, Lainey Wilson & Zac Brown Band.
Producer Robert Deaton says the project is country music’s “thank you” to the Stones:
“This album is Country Music’s thank you to The Rolling Stones for 60 years of inspiration and providing the soundtrack of our lives. While recording the record, I was reminded that this is a showcase and spotlight on the best we have to offer as a genre,.
From our artists to all of the musicians that played on the record, we boldly state that Country Music is second to none when it comes to artists of integrity and creativity.”
The first song, Brothers Osborne and War & Treaty’s take on “It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll (But I Like It)”, is set to drop next week, but we won’t see the full album until 2023.
