Bruce Springsteen: Gone Country!

He’s gone country
Hear that twangy sound
He’s gone country
The Boss has come around
He’s gone country...
Ahhh, here he comes!

Country music and classic rock have always gone together like black cowboy hats and Tim McGraw. Widely respected liberal and classic rock hero Bruce Springsteen (iTunes) does his part to bolster this close relationship with his next album, We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions. A collection of folk tunes associated with the great Pete Seeger (iTunes), the disc has more twang than some albums coming out of Nashville these days. Violins and banjos feature prominently in many of the songs, and an upright bass thumbs along to the tunes. The album can be better described as bluegrass country than as modern country, but it should appeal to most readers of this blog. The album is due out the last week of April.

Check out for a "music video" from the album.
