A new Tom Petty tribute album, titled Petty Country, which is set to arrive later this year on BMLG, will feature Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson and several other country stars.

Chris Stapleton, Marty Stuart, Margo Price, and former Heartbreakers Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench are among the other acts that will feature on the upcoming tribute album.

“Petty’s southern roots shined through across his songwriting and storytelling,” said Dierk Bentley, whose cover of “American Girl” for the tribute album arrived last week. “He might not have ever been considered as country but you can’t go into a bar in Nashville without hearing this song. It is one of the greatest songs in a life’s work of great American songs.”

“I’m convinced the second verse of this song is some of the best singing in the history of any rock or country band because his voice, there’s so much angst,” Bentley said about picking “American Girl.” “You know, it’s just his voice has that kind of brokenness to it to begin with, so it’s just so, just the emotion behind his voice is just unparalleled.”

Petty died at age 66 after an accidental overdose of prescribed medicines on Oct. 2, 2017.
