The Raconteurs Enlist Ricky Skaggs, Ashley Monroe for Bluegrass Track

The Raconteurs, a Nashville-based rock band featuring Jack White of the White Stripes, has rerecorded its new single, “Old Enough,” as a bluegrass song featuring Ricky Skaggs and Ashley Monroe. “We wanted to show a different side of the band and work with a few local artists we highly respect,” said the Raconteurs’ Patrick Keeler. “Ricky is a legend, plain and simple, and one of the best players around. Ashley Monroe is a young, rising star with an angelic voice.” The single will be released digitally exclusively through Amazon on Dec. 2, followed a week later by all other digital retailers. The single will also be available as a CD single on Dec. 9 and released on vinyl on Dec. 16. The B-side will be a bluegrass version of “Top Yourself.” White won two Grammys for producing and performing on Loretta Lynn‘s 2004 album, Van Lear Rose. The Raconteurs released their latest album, Consolers of the Lonely, in March.
