Bill Withers came out of the woodworks this week with his first release since 1985! The legendary singer/songwriter, who’s recordings of “Ain’t No Sunshine,” “Lean On Me,” “Lovely Day,” and “Use Me” will forever live in rotation, recorded a song for the Little Jimmy Dickens tribute album, The Rhinestone Hillbilly. Withers recorded a version of Dickens’ “(You’ve Been Quite A Doll) Raggedy Ann” for the compilation, which is available now on Bandcamp.Listen to the recording below:<a href=”http://rhinestonehillbilly.bandcamp.com/album/the-rhinestone-hillbilly”>The Rhinestone Hillbilly by Little Jimmy Dickens Tribute</a>Withers’ cover appears on the 16-track album, alongside Kathy Mattea, Charlie McCoy, Tim O’Brien, Connie Smith and more. A who’s-who of country, Americana and bluegrass luminaries celebrate the music of “little but loud” hillbilly hero Little Jimmy Dickens on The Rhinestone Hillbilly. Like Little Jimmy, who was inducted into the WVMHoF in 2007, all of the performers are proud of their long-standing connections to the Mountain State. More information is available here.
