T. G. Sheppard Enrols Country Royalty For Duets Album

Chart-riding in the ’70s and ’80s, for the last quarter of a century T. G. Sheppard hasn’t been in the star league. The situation may be redressed, though, on October 30th when the veteran releases “Legendary Friends & Country Duets” whose title says it all. The album will find singer in the company of other luminaries, including such opposites as the mellifluous Engelbert Humperdinck and the rugged Merle Haggard, as well as rock proponents of the Grand Ole Opry’s clique, Willie Nelson and Jerry Lee Lewis. There’s also poignancy in “It’s A Man Thing” where Sheppard’s partner at the mic is the late George Jones, while “Fifteen Rounds” chugs on Steve Cropper’s soulful input. Something for everyone, then, and quite a way to sail back into hit parades.

An interesting collection it is (read the review), and its full breakdown is as follows:
