“Forever Country” is a fresh take on three Country classics: John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again,” and Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You.”
One of the voices on Nelson’s “On the Road Again” for “Forever Country,” is Brett Eldredge:
“‘On The Road Again’ I got to sing a couple parts on that and with some amazing singers, so I’m like okay go in here . . . I’m so nervous kind of, because these are some of the best people that have ever sang in this genre and in music and I’m going to sing along with them. I’ve got to step my game up! So, I showed up and Shane McAnally was producing it, and he’s a buddy of mine. We’ve written songs together and stuff. So I went and there and just said you know what, there’s a reason I’m here. I got to be here. I’m going to go show them what I’ve got, and I got to sing ‘On The Road Again’ and picture myself rolling down the highway with Willie Nelson in a bus ‘cause that’s like where he lives. He will do that till the day he dies. He loves it. That’s in his blood, and I feel like I’m the same way. I will never lose that road life out of me and that feeling I get when I go out on stage or when I’m singing these lines, I’m riding right down on the highway with Willie Nelson singing ‘On The Road Again.”
The “Forever Country” single premiered on hundreds of radio stations simultaneously across the United States and in several key international markets on Friday, September 16th. The audio single is now available for digital download and streaming.
