A limited number of bundles are also offered, including a T-shirt and 12X12 lithograph.

Don Henley will launch a solo tour in October 2015 that will include concerts in Atlanta, GA; Chicago, IL; Dallas, TX; Denver, CO; Detroit, MI; Durham, NC; Los Angeles, CA; Nashville, TN; New York, NY; Philadelphia, PA; Port Chester, NY; San Francisco, CA; Santa Barbara, CA; Toronto, ON and Washington, D.C. Singer-songwriter Shawn Colvin will open on all the dates.

Each ticket ordered for any of the tour dates will receive a Cass County deluxe CD. Ticket buyers will receive an email notification to confirm the delivery details for their album. Full tour details will be announced shortly.

Cass County was produced by Don Henley and Stan Lynch, who also co- wrote 11 of the songs on the album, and represents both Henley’s roots and the next stop on his creative journey. “I was born and raised in Texas. I'm a Southerner and a Texan. So this is a natural progression for me. It's who I am and where I come from,” says Don Henley.

Recorded primarily in Nashville, Tennessee, and Dallas, Texas, the album includes guest appearances from Merle Haggard, Miranda Lambert, Mick Jagger, Martina McBride, Jamey Johnson, Alison Krauss, Vince Gill and Dolly Parton. When asked about making the album, Henley exclaimed, “I can truthfully say, I enjoyed making this record more than any record I’ve made in my career because of the people who participated. John Sebastian was dead right in 1965 or 1966 when he wrote that song ‘Nashville Cats.’ It’s still true all these years later. There are some amazing musicians here.”
