Somebody told me that Norah Jones did a remake of an Everly Brothers album with Billie Joe Armstrong. I had no idea what to expect, but I like the results. Amazon says it's "inspired" by the 1958 Everly Brothers album is "Songs Our Daddy Taught Us." Seems to me that it's a direct remake of the Everly album. Whatever the case, I like both albums. Spotify has an additional album of comments on the songs - also available on YouTube. Warner Brothers has the entire album available for listening on YouTube - what's the catch?
One song that interested me was "Kentucky," which appears to use the tune of the Carter Family song, "You Are My Flower." Here's a YouTube Recording of "Kentucky," by songwriter Karl Davis, with Harty Taylor.
