Hank Locklin,
Generations in Song
(Slewfoot, 2003)

This new album from legendary country tenor Hank Locklin leads off with Locklin and Dolly Parton in a duet on his huge hit "Send Me the Pillow You Dream On." Other featured guests on this album include Jett Williams (daughter of Hank Williams Sr.), Vince Gill, Jeanne Pruett ("Satin Sheets"), Hank Williams Sr.'s grandchildren and more.

Lockin felt no need to update his classic sound for his golden throat, and the tasteful arrangements of strings, singer and guitars on Generations in Song is a winning combination. With folks like Locklin, quality never goes out of style.

His musicians for this recording include legendary session guitarist Jimmy Capps ("The Gambler"), drummer Buddy Harmon (J.J. Cale, Jerry Lee Lewis), pianist Hargus "Pig" Robbins (Patsy Cline, David Allen Coe) and Charlie McCoy on harmonica and vibes, along with several others.
