CHEETAH CHROME-PRODUCED COLLECTION FEATURES FRANK BLACK, ALEJANDRO ESCOVEDO, MARY GAUTHIER, LAMBCHOP, JASON ISBELL AND MORE.
Punk legend Cheetah Chrome and author/music historian/professor Don Cusic have produced an album of rock, indie, roots, country and pop musicians interpreting the timeless songs by Eddy Arnold, one of the most influential country musicians of all time. ’You Don’t Know Me: Rediscovering Eddy Arnold’ puts the focus on Arnold’s 70-year career as a songwriter and hitmaker and will be released May 14th on Plowboy Records, the label co-founded by Arnold’s grandson. Several songs were recorded at famed RCA Studio B in Nashville — where Arnold recorded many of his signature songs – and coincides with what would have been his 95th birthday, May 15th.
Eddy Arnold did more than perhaps any other musician to expand the boundaries of country music in the 20th century, a fact reflected in the range of artists on ‘You Don’t Know Me’: Alejandro Escovedo, Lambchop, Frank Black, Melinda Doolittle, Chuck Mead, Bobby Bare Jr, Jason Isbell, Mary Gautheir, Drivin’ n Cryin’, Bebe Buell, Pokey LaFarge, Peter Noone and more.
