Stan Lynch, the drummer for Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, is said to be producing the album. Among the featured guest singers are Alison Krause and Ronnie Dunn from Brooks & Dunn. In a 2007 interview with CNN Henley said he was under contract with Warner Brothers to put out a couple solo albums.
