Michael McDonald Reunites With The Doobie Brothers For A Country Album

News has just been released that Michael McDonald who is currently on tour (he will be in Arizona on March 22nd) , will be reuniting with the Doobie Brothers for a country album!

Johnson sat down to talk about being on a country album:¬†“The Doobies cover a wide swath musically. We’re an American band. We cover everything from blues and R&B to bluegrass, and even a little bit country. At the same time we do rock and roll and these days it seems country has adopted a good bit of rock and roll to go along with the country style of singing and the banjo and pedal steel. It all works together and I think it’s fascinating.”

Johnson also discussed the bad blood between him and Michael:

“It amazes me how long that has hung around because it have never been the case, ever. A lot of people wanted that to be the case because of the two different styles of music, but it never was. I always got along really well with Michael and vice versa.”

The album will also include country acts such as Brad Paisly, The Zac Brown Band, and Sara Evans. They will be joining in on the album by recreating some of their biggest hits.

Paisley, Evans, and Chris Young just performed with the band last week at Sony Nashville’s annual exclusive party for industry execs aboard the General Jackson Snowboat.

Other big names who will be joining in include Love and Theft, Toby Keith and Jerrod Neimann.
