Webb Pierce Tribute Album Due in November

Gail Davies tells country.com that her labor of love — an album honoring the hits of Webb Pierce — is nearing completion and slotted for a Nov. 13 release on the Valley Entertainment label. All the singers and musicians involved in the project have donated their services, says Davies, who coordinated and produced the album. Income from album sales will be split between the Minnie Pearl Cancer Foundation and the Country Music Hall of Fame. Called Caught in the Webb: A Tribute to the Legendary Webb Pierce, the album to date includes cuts by Dale Watson, Mandy Barnett, Charley Pride, Rosie Flores, George Jones, Emmylou Harris, Robbie Fulks & Joy Lynn White, Allison Moorer, Matt King, Crystal Gayle, the Del McCoury Band, Lionel Cartwright, Guy Clark, BR549, Trent Summar & Chris Scruggs (Davies’ son), Kevin Welch & Deborah Pierce, Billy Walker, Blue Highway and Pam Tillis. The Jordanaires and the Carol Lee Singers provide background vocals on some cuts. Pierce will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in October. 08/29/01
