Keith Urban, Tim McGraw and Willie Nelson are just a few of the featured collaborators joining Rita Wilson for her new ‘70s cover album, Now & Forever: Duets.
The track list features a span of guest vocalists from a variety of different genres -- for example, Smokey Robinson and Elvis Costello each get a feature -- but country music is especially well represented. Jimmie Allen and Vince Gill also join Rita for a track.
According to Billboard, Rita chose to focus on ‘70s covers because of the personal significance the decade holds for her.
“I wanted to honor where I came from with songs from the '70s,” the singer explained. “It was really about showing enormous appreciation for the songwriting of that period -- how these songs are still relevant even though they’re 50 years old. This album is really a continuation of sharing who I am musically, and what it is that I want to say.”
Now & Forever is due out September 27.
