Eagles founder, drummer and singer-songwriter Don Henley is back with a foray into country on his upcoming album Cass County. Due Sept. 25, the album is an homage to Henley's Texas hometown. With some help from Merle Haggard, Martina McBride, Alison Krauss, Vince Gill, Dolly Parton and Mick Jagger, he rounds up an unprecedented cast of A-list artists that span the genres. 

With two early released tracks, Henley lets his fans have a taste of what's to come on his first solo album in fifteen years. "Take a Picture of This" and "That Old Flame (ft. Martina McBride)" -- both co-written by Stan Lynch -- nod to the place Don Henley called home before "Hotel California."
