The Texas country scene has banded together to create a tribute to Pat Green, one of the scene’s pioneers in the 1990s and early aughts, just in time for his 46th birthday.
The tribute album “Dancehall Dreamin’: A Tribute to Pat Green” will be released on April 5 (Green’s birthday) and will feature contributions from Texas acts like the Randy Rogers Band, William Clark Green, Josh Abbott Band, Aaron Watson and Jack Ingram.

The album will be 10 songs long, plus 10 more commentary tracks where Green explains the stories behind each song.
"I've seen a million miles of highway go by the windshield in my bus. I've gotten to entertain millions of people throughout my life. I didn't see this coming at all. I didn't know that my friends would all get together and record my songs, but I feel nothing but gratitude towards all of them,” Green said in a news release.

The track list for the album looks like this tribute is going to be interesting. You’ll hear William Clark Green’s take on “Wrapped,” Randy Rogers Band’s take on “Three Days” and Jack Ingram’s interpretation of “Wave On Wave.”
Perhaps the most fitting choice here is that John Baumann is covering “Nightmare.” Nice.
