Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — Jamey Johnson sang at Hank Cochran's bedside in the hours before his death. Now he's showing his love for the legendary songwriter again.

Johnson's next album will be a collaborative celebration of Cochran's music. "Livin' for a Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran" will include appearances by Willie Nelson, George Strait, Alison Krauss, Elvis Costello and many others, each singing a duet with Johnson. The album will come out Sept. 25 on vinyl and Oct. 16 in other formats.

The 16-track album features some of Cochran's most well-known hits, including "I Fall to Pieces," performed with Merle Haggard, and "Make the World Go Away," with Krauss. Others appearing include Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Ray Price, Ronnie Dunn, Leon Russell, Bobby Bare and Kris Kristofferson.

Cochran died in July 2010 at 74.
