One of the mainstays of classic rock radio, The Doobie Brothers sound encompasses crunchy guitars, funk and R&B influences and the sweet vocal harmonies of country music. Their connection to the latter has just gotten a lot stronger with the release of Southbound, which features collaborations with country music’s A-list on a slew of Doobie classics. Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton and Zac Brown are just a few of the artists to appear on the record and watch this exclusive video to see what song country star and former American Idol finalist Casey James got to sing with the band.
If that isn’t enough for you, The Doobie Brothers recently reunited with former lead singer Michael McDonald in the studios of VH1 Classic’s On Tap radio show. It was all smiles as they delivered a stirring, stripped down acoustic version of their classic song “Takin’ It to the Streets.” Watch this exclusive performance below and check out the whole interview HERE for more Doobie Brothers action.
Southbound is out November 4th, but you can preorder on iTunes and Amazon today!
