Brad Paisley, Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Sheryl Crow, Ricky Skaggs, Joe Diffie and others are paying tribute to Mark Twain.
They are part of a two-CD set, with a 40-page booklet, called “Mark Twain: Words and Music.” It’s spoken word and music to tell the life story of Samuel Langhorne Clemens, AKA Mark Twain, whose 175th birthday was celebrated last year.
The double-album is narrated by Garrison Keiller with Clint Eastwood as the voice of Twain and Jimmy Buffett voicing Huck Finn.
It’s on Buffett’s label, Mailboat Records, and is available for purchase now.
The CD is a benefit for the Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum in Hannibal, Missouri.
