Country Music Hall of Fame member Don Williams will release And So It Goes, his first album since 2004, on June 19. Keith Urban, Vince Gill and Alison Krauss make guest appearances on the Sugar Hill Records project that reunites Williams with producer Garth Fundis. Krauss appears on a duet titled "I Just Come Here for the Music." Williams, 72, has curtailed his touring schedule in recent years and agreed to return to the studio following encouragement from his management company and the label. "I didn't do this album because I just felt that I was going to die if I didn't do another one but because of all of that encouragement to do it," he said. "So here we are -- and now I'm feeling good about it." During the '70s and '80s, Williams topped Billboard's country chart with 17 singles, including "You're My Best Friend," "Till the Rivers All Run Dry," "Tulsa Time" and "I Believe in You." In recording the new album, Fundis said, "We weren't looking to reinvent Don -- just to make a good new Don Williams record."

I heard about this duet this morning on the radio right after "My Love Follows You Where You Go" was played!!! 103.1 WIKQ of Johnson City, TN is the country station that gave AKUS the spin and may this Don and Alison duet be submitted for the next Grammy awards show!
God bless you and Don and AKUS always!!!
Go here to check out my most favorite male singer James Otto!
I wonder if, in the vaults, there is a version where Alison soloes on the second verse? I bet there is and then probably it was mutually decided to come out with the version that's on the CD. Just guessin'......
