From the Houston Chronicle: “Eastwood, Buffett among stars on CD honoring Twain”
A wide range of performers — from Clint Eastwood to Jimmy Buffett to Emmylou Harris — are part of a new tribute to the favorite son of Hannibal, Mo.
The CD, “Mark Twain: Words & Music” will be released Wednesday. It tells the story of Twain in spoken word and song, and features narration by Garrison Keillor. Eastwood is the voice of Twain. Buffett is the voice of Huckleberry Finn.
Buffett is a Twain lover — he has paid homage in several books and songs. He eagerly signed onto the project, and his Mailboat Records made and is distributing the CD. Lovell said worldwide release is planned.
“Time has not eroded the spirit, force, character and humor of Huck and Mr. Twain’s words,” Buffett said in a statement.
