All is Forgiven

Cool. And coincidental. Van Morrison has signed with the Lost Highway label, home of some country singers you might have heard of: Lucinda Williams, Ryan Adams, Mary Gauthier, Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson and The Jayhawks. His new "country-dominated" album is out in March:

"Pay the Devil" is rounded out by songs popularized by Webb Pierce ("There Stands the Glass"), Hank Williams ("Your Cheatin' Heart"), Conway Twitty ("What Am I Living For"), Emmylou Harris ("'Til I Gain Control"), Big Joe Turner ("Don't You Make Me High") and George Jones ("Things Have Gone to Pieces"), among others.

Off the top of my head, these looks like classic country covers too (full list at linked report): My Bucket's Got a Hole in It, Once a Day, Back Street Affair, Big Blue Diamonds.
