A Waylon Jennings tribute album featuring artists such as Trace Adkins, Alabama, Jamey Johnson and Randy Houser will be released on Feb. 8 by Scatter Records and the Valory Music Co. The album will be the first installment in a trilogy titled The Music Inside: A Collaboration Dedicated to Waylon Jennings, with the remaining two volumes expected later in 2011. Alabama's version of "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way" will be released as the project's first single on Nov. 29 with an official add date of Dec. 13. It's the band's first new recording in a decade. Kris Kristofferson and Patty Griffin collaborate on "Rose in Paradise," and Jennings' widow, Jessi Colter, partners with Sunny Sweeney for a duet of "Good Hearted Woman." Jennings' son, Shooter Jennings, covers "Belle of the Ball" while Waylon Jennings appears on two tracks -- a solo version of "Go Down Rockin'" and a duet with John Hiatt on "Just to Satisfy You."
