Ian Tyson, Gordon Lightfoot, The Good Brothers and Michelle Wright are among the legends that will be paired with up and coming Canadian artists on the album being recorded in Kelowna next month.
Director Ron Sanders very excited about the exposure it will create for Merritt's Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame.
"We're trying to get some more recognition for the hall of fame and the people that are inducted into it. So, the idea came up to pair current inductees with up and coming artists, and create an album"
The "Then and Now" album will feature ten songs.
The Canadian Country Music Heritage Society is hoping to release the album, and a video documenting the making of it, at the CCMA's in September.
