Don Henley Takes You To ‘Cass County’

Releasing his first solo album in 15 years, Eagles co-founder Don Henley announces an October-November adventure beginning in Phoenix and includes Shawn Colvin opening on all dates.  Tickets for “Cass County Tour” go on sale later this week.

Henley’s fifth solo effort – Cass County – arrives Sept. 25.  The title harkens back to Henley’s days growing up in Cass County, Texas. The album will be available in the standard CD format and from digital retailers. Fans desiring more from the new release will want the 16-track deluxe version on CD as well as in a double disc package featuring 180-gram vinyl.

But wait, there’s more.  A super-deluxe version that includes a 50-page booklet packed with exclusive photos, collector postcards and other collectibles will be available via Henley’s official online store. A limited number of packages will include a T-shirt and a 12×12 lithograph.
