Jerry Lee Lewis Plans New Country Album

Jerry Lee Lewis has released a new country single, “Mean Old Man,” which was written by Kris Kristofferson specifically for Lewis. The album is expected to be released on Shangri-La music later this year or early next year. Along with an Oct. 2 show in Las Vegas, Lewis has scheduled several international concerts throughout the remainder of 2009. In addition to his 1950s hits like “Whole Lot of Shakin’ Goin’ On” and “Great Balls of Fire,” Lewis charted more than a dozen Top 10 country hits between the late 1960s and early 1980s.
