Doobie Brothers Announce Lineup for Tribute Album ‘Southbound,’ Including Blake Shelton, Hunter Hayes
The Doobie Brothers are calling on many of their country friends for their tribute album ‘Southbound,’ set to be released on Nov. 4.
Today (July 3) the video for Jerrod Niemann’s “Drink To That All Night (Remix)” was released and well, Pitbull and Niemann bring the party as expected.
Jerrod Niemann topped the charts last month with “Drink to That All Night.” Now the song has been remixed by Pitbull. “He brought it to another level,” said Niemann.

“We were looking for a gas station. All of a sudden ‘Lover, Lover’ came on and we got so excited we cranked it up and we had the windows rolled down. It was one of those really surreal, cool moments and then we just forgot about the gas completely.”
“I think when you turn on the radio that’s when you should forget the bad news and hear the good news,” he said. “I always try to put an album together that’s hopefully more fun than sad and boring.”
“It seems there’s bad news any time you turn on the TV, so I always say when I want to hear good news I turn on country radio,” Niemann said. “So I tried to make an album that reflects that.”
Headlined by Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban, the two-day event takes place in Las Vegas the weekend of the 49th ACM Awards.
Jerrod Niemann and Brett Eldredge will support Urban on the Raise ‘Em Up Tour, which features a new stage production and song list. See all the tour dates.
The upcoming album project will feature select Doobie Brothers hits performed by the band and former lead singer Michael McDonald, as well as numerous country guest stars.
After announcing his upcoming album “High Noon,” Niemann has now released a music video for the album’s lead single, the punched-up party song “Drink to That All Night.”
