THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Stoned Cold Country is a new tribute to The Rolling Stones by some of country music’s biggest stars. Filled with reimagined classics from the legendary rock band’s catalogue, the star-studded 60th-anniversary tribute — produced by Robert Deaton — features Jimmie Allen, Brooks & Dunn, Brothers Osborne, Eric Church, Steve Earle, Elle King, Marcus King, Little Big Town, Ashley McBryde, Maren Morris, Elvie Shane, The War And Treaty, Koe Wetzel, Lainey Wilson and Zac Brown Band, all celebrating one of the most enduring and influential bands in the world.
“The Rolling Stones are global music icons. To have the opportunity to record one of their tracks was an incredible honor for me,” said Wilson. “I had so much fun recording this track and I’m so grateful that I got to bring my bell-bottom country flare to one of their greatest hits.”
Long fascinated by the Stones, and specifically their country period, album producer Deaton spent the past several years on a specific mission: To shine a light on the Stones’ influence not only on country music, but more specifically on some of its most unconventional contemporary artists.
“This album is country music’s thank you to The Rolling Stones for 60 years of inspiration and providing the soundtrack of our lives. While recording the record, I was reminded that this is a showcase and spotlight on the best we have to offer as a genre,” Deaton says. “From our artists to all of the musicians that played on the record, we boldly state that country music is second to none when it comes to artists of integrity and creativity.”
