The 12-track duets album features four songs written by Crowell as well as interpretations of songs such as Hank DeVito’s “Hanging Up My Heart,” Roger Miller’s “Invitation to the Blues,” and Allen Reynolds’ “Dreaming My Dreams,” among others. In celebration of the album, the duo will embark on a series of tour dates this spring. More details will be announced shortly.
