 You could list the great singers and bands of country music for quite a long time before you came up with “The Doobie Brothers,” but the classics can transcend classification – fresh evidence of that truth is coming up November 4 with the release of “Southbound,” a tribute/duets album on which the Doobies will reprise their greatest hits with stars from the country world. The list of contributors includes Oklahomans Blake Shelton (“Listen to the Music”), Toby Keith (“Long Train Runnin’”) and Vince Gill (guitar on “You Belong to Me”), plus nine others, with each track featuring one of the band’s trio of vocalists. For classic rock fans looking for new musical fuel when rockin’ down the highway (Brad Paisley), this should be cause for celebration.
