Cass County, the performer’s first ever fully country-oriented project, will also be his first solo release in nearly 15 years. Over the past few weeks, the 68-year-old has been giving fans glimpses of tracks to be featured on the album.
His latest teaser comes in the form of a new live performance video for the track “Take a Picture of This”. Henley, who co-wrote the track with producer Stan Lynch, makes his clever songwriting style apparent within the track. Although it seems like a song with a simple concept, there’s a surprising twist at the end only Henley could expertly deliver. After he sings of touching life milestones, such as being married and having children, listeners are hit in the face with a harsh dose of reality.
Cass County is set for release on Sept. 25 and will feature a slew of special guests, including Merle Haggard, Dolly Parton, Ashley Monroe, Trisha Yearwood, Miranda Lambert and Martina McBride. Next week, Henley will be presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Americana Music Awards held at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn.
