    Country star Alan Jackson will release his first bluegrass album – appropriately titled The Bluegrass Album – on September 24. Jackson wrote eight songs for the album, which also includes other originals and a couple of well-known standards of the genre.

    Jackson has openly expressed his desire to record a bluegrass album for years. This spring, a group of some of the best players and singers in bluegrass came together, emerging in a matter of days with the completed acoustic album. He enlisted Scott Coney (acoustic guitar), Sammy Shelor (banjo), Adam Steffey (mandolin), Tim Crouch (fiddle), Tim Dishman (bass), Rob Ickes (dobro) and Ronnie Bowman and Don Rigsby (vocals).

    Originals that Jackson penned for the album include such titles as "Blacktop," "Blue Ridge Mountain Song" and "Mary." Covers on The Bluegrass Album include The Dillards' "There Is a Time"; John Anderson's "Wild and Blue" and a ¾-time version of Bill Monroe's seminal "Blue Moon of Kentucky."
