    ITEM#: 10825570

    Personnel: Merle Haggard (vocals, guitar); Alison Krauss (vocals, baritone); Carl Jackson (tenor, guitar, background vocals); Rob Ickes (slide guitar, resonator guitar, dobro); Colonel J.D. Wilkes (harmonica); Charlie Cushman (guitar, banjo); Marty Stuart (guitar, mandolin); Scott Joss, Aubrey Haynie (fiddle); Ben Isaacs (upright bass). Audio Mixers: Ronnie Reno; Lee Groitzsch. Recording information: Skaggs Place, Hendersonville, TN; Station West, Nashville, TN. Photographer: Brenda McClearen. Unknown Contributor Role: Alison Krauss. It should not be assumed from the album title that THE BLUEGRASS SESSIONS finds honky-tonk hero Merle Haggard making like a modern-day Bill Monroe. His actual style alters little here, as he winds his way through new versions of some of his classic tunes ("Mama's Hungry Eyes," "Big City," etc.) and reinterprets material by his own heroes (the Delmore Brothers, Jimmie Rodgers). The "bluegrass" comes largely from the fact that he's joined here by such notables as Alison Krauss and fiddler nonpareil Aubrey Haynie, who frame the songs with pickin'-and-sawin', all-acoustic arrangements that re-contextualize the tunes, moving them handily from the honky tonk to the back porch. Hardline purists of both the Hag and bluegrass camps might be taken aback, but any country fan with ears will recognize the rightness of the end result.
