Billie Joe & Norah Jones= Great Alt Country Music??

Recently Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day and Norah Jones released a cover album of the Everly Brothers' 1958 album: "Songs Our Daddy Taught Us" entitled "Foreverly". Now when I first heard this album, I didn't think much of it. In fact I assumed that it would not be very good at all. Yet I was still intrigued.

So when I had a chance to give a listen to it, I did. And I am really glad I did. This album is a completely charming, and fun listen. Armstrong and Jones' voice harmonize incredibly well together. My favorite track is the opening track entitled "Roving Gambler". Give it a chance, I think you will enjoy it too.
