Peak chart positions: No.1 Billboard Country Albums, No.18 Billboard Top 200 and No.15 Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.
Was had long dreamed of a project something like Rhythm, Country and Blues. "Country and R&B are simple forms that are highly emotional," Was said. "And structurally, when you started breaking down the classic songs, there wasn't that much difference. The material easily crossed lines.
Therefore, the music could probably cross them as well. Once we were past the novelty of the pairings, I wanted the project to bloom into less of a museum event than just good music. So at some point I think we crossed that line: OK, it's a great, even radical idea. Now, let's forget all that and try to make some really cool records."
