Alan Jackson CD not bluegrass

We previously reported that Alison Krauss was producing a new CD by Alan Jackson that was said to be a bluegrass record. Alison did produce the new CD, but this morning we noticed a report on a Net Music Countdown stating that the new CD is finished, but isn’t bluegrass.

“‘[Like] Red On a Rose’ was one of the first things we cut,” Alan says. “I loved it the first time I heard the demo.” After recording this and a couple of other songs, Alan and Alison decided they should move ahead and work together on a complete album. They initially got together thinking they might try working on a bluegrass project of some sort…but the songs they record ended up taking them in a bit of a different direction.
