Nashville Celebrates the Influence of The Rolling Stones with 'Stoned Cold Country'

Deemed as Nashville's official "love letter to The Rolling Stones," highly acclaimed producer and director Robert Deaton has accumulated some of the brightest talents in Music City for the Stoned Cold Country project: an album along with a documentary in which country singers explore the influence of the iconic rock band while covering some of their most famous hits.

The compilation LP comes just in time for The Rolling Stones' 60th anniversary and features artists like Ashley McBryde, Brooks & Dunn, Maren Morris, Brothers Osborne, Zac Brown Band, Little Big Town, Eric Church, and Steve Earle. Rising artists Lainey Wilson, Jimmie Allen, Elvie Shane, Elle King, The War and Treaty, Koe Wetzel, and Marcus King were also a part of the 14-song record.

The documentary showcases artists stepping into the recording studio to cover legendary tracks like "Paint It Black," "Gimme Shelter," "Wild Horses," "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," and more. Speaking in the film of the highlighted musicians on the album, Robert Deaton shared,"I wanted every artist on the record to have the same spirit as The Stones."

In celebration of the release on March 17th, BMG Nashville held an event at SoHo House to put spotlight on Stoned Cold Country for a special panel discussion with Deaton alongside Lainey Wilson, Elvie Shane, and T.J. Osborne of Brothers Osborne.
