Bon Jovi goes country with new CD, "Lost Highway"

Monday, March 19, 2007 – Flush with sickness on being the first rock act to have a number one country hit, Bon Jovi is going the Nashville root for its next CD, "Lost Highway," out June 19 on Island/Mercury Nashville.

Produced by Dann Huff (Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts) and John Shanks (who co-produced Bon Jovi's "Have A Nice Day" and whose credits include Sheryl Crow, Melissa Etheridge and Chris Isaak), "Lost Highway" drops June 19 on Island Records/Mercury Nashville. "(You Want To) Make A Memory," the first single from the new album, will hit radio Tuesday, March 20.

Bon Jovi had a number one single with Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles, "Who Says You Can't Go Home."

Bon Jovi is scheduled for live performances of "(You Want To) Make A Memory" on the upcoming 6th annual CMT Awards broadcast (April 16th live from Nashville); on Fox's "American Idol" (May 2nd); and on NBC's "Today Show" Outdoor Plaza (June 19th).

The album's title song in the new film, "Wild Hogs." Another album track, "We Got It Going On," a duet with Big & Rich, is the theme song for the new Arena Football League season on ESPN.
