David Huff helmed production of the recently announced album which pairs the Doobie Brothers with country superstars. Among the artists teaming with the Doobies for the Sony Music Nashville release are Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Zac Brown Band, Sara Evans, Chris Young, Jerrod Niemann and Love and Theft.

Huff, a longtime fan of the Doobie Brothers, is eager to introduce the band to a new generation of fans. “The Doobie Brothers are such an important band in the history of music,” he said. “The hits transcend time, so with this new collection we are just adding modern production and collaborations with the country stars.”

Huff, younger brother of renowned producer Dann Huff, splits time between Nashville and L.A. producing pop and country artists. “I think it will be the first time that Nashville will hear how very talented he is,” said Dann, who co-produced four tracks on the album. “We’ve been making music together almost our whole lives. This really was his baby and I see it as David’s entry into the country market. I am just honored that I got to witness him work on a few songs.”

In addition to the Doobie’s founding members, Tom Johnston and Pat Simmons, who continue to front the band, the album will feature legendary singer Michael McDonald, who exited in 1982 but is returning for this project, and John McFee, whose history with the Doobies dates back to 1978.
