Charles Kelley and Stevie Nicks cover Tom Petty's "Southern Accents" on "Driver" Avail. Feb 5th

Charles Kelley Enlists Miranda Lambert, Stevie Nicks for Solo LP

Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley has set February 5th as the release date for his solo debut The Driver and has enlisted rock goddess Stevie Nicks and country superstar Miranda Lambert to ride along with him.

“Southern Accents” (feat. Stevie Nicks) (Tom Petty) – Petty’s original arrangement from his 1985 album of the same name doesn’t get shaken up much during Kelley’s cover. It’s still piano-driven, with a little percussion to add rhythm before things begin to swell. Nicks gets her own verse, in addition to singing alongside Kelley.

Full details on the album available at Rollingstone or Taste of Country

Tom Petty says it was hard to sum up his friendship with Stevie Nicks

In this excerpt taken from a much larger interview piece written in the Toronto Sun, interviewer Jane Stevenson lists her 5 essential Tom Petty songs... Her favourite being "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around".

She wrote:

"One of my favourite Tom Petty songs is Stop Draggin' My Heart Around, a duet with Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks, the first single from her 1981 solo debut, Bella Donna.

It was written by Petty and Mike Campbell as a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers song, but producer Jimmy Iovine, who was also working for Stevie Nicks at the time, arranged for her to sing on it. (The original version without Nicks appears on the Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' 1995 box set Playback.) Petty says it was hard to sum up their friendship.

"Have you got a couple of hours? She's a good friend. I've know her since 1978 and she's insisted on being in my life (laughs). Some of my best musical memories of her are sitting on the couch and just playing the guitar while she sings."

Sadly, there's no new Nicks duets on Petty and the Heartbreakers new album, Hypnotic Eye: "There are no girls in the Heartbeakers," he says."

Counting down Petty's 20 biggest smashes with the Heartbreakers and beyond
Billboard recently ran down Tom Petty's Top 20 Billboard Hot 100 Hits. Tom and Stevie's live duet "Needles and Pins" from the "Pack Up The Plantation" Album came in at No.16 and Stevie and Tom's duet "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" from "Bella Donna" was selected as No.1. Selections were based on their Hot 100 chart performance.

3 shows into their current MOJO Tour - and once again, as was the case on their last tour - Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers are covering Fleetwood Mac's "Oh Well".  The song fits the bluesy theme of MOJO and the setlist on tour leans heavily on tracks from MOJO - with 5 or 6 songs from the album making it into the show. 

If you are interested in hearing the new album, their first in 8 years, being released on June 15th, you can stream the full album at ESPN MUSIC.

A multi disc set of recordings drawn from thirty years of live performances. The collection brings together material from 1978 - 2007 culled from hundreds of hours of live concert recordings covering every era of Tom Petty and The Hearbreakers' tours and represents the best tracks as chosen by producers Tom Petty, Mike Cambell and Ryan Ulyate.

Along with powerful interpretations of their own classic hits and originals, The Live Anthology features the band tackling some of their best-loved cover material, from classics to obscure beauties to unexpected adaptations. The theme from Goldfinger, the Zombies' "I Want You Back Again", the Grateful Dead's "Friend of the Devil", early Fleetwood Mac's "Oh Well", Booker T. and the MGs "Green Onions", James Brown's "Good, Good Lovin'" and many more. The Live Anthology is the band's story told through the music alone, the producers made no fixes or overdubs.

No Release Date Announced.

Just watched Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers "Runnin' Down a Dream Documentary".... Really great stuff! it's full of rare old footage of the band right from the beginning. If you haven't seen it, I would highly recommend it. The Documentary chronicles the history of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Petty’s epic battles with the record industry along with his collaborations with Bob Dylan, Stevie Nicks, Roger McGuinn and the Traveling Wilburys.

One segment I cut out is with Tom describing how it came to be that Stevie recorded "Stop Draggin My Heart Around". This video includes Tom and Stevie in the recording studio putting the vocals on the track, Jimmy Iovine talking about how he knew the song was going to be a winner with Stevie singing a song from a guys perspective... and of course Stevie herself commenting on the song.
