Can't wait for this!!!!    Right on the heels of big hair band Motley Crue announcing they are retiring from the road, lots of our country faves will be part of a Crue tribute album this summer! 

Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert, Justin Moore , The Eli Young Band, Cassadee Pope and LeAnn Rimes will be on the disc.  "I have been a not-so-secret Crüe fan from the beginning," Big Machine Records CEO Scott Borchetta said yesterday.   "When manager Chris Nilsson called with the idea for a tribute album on Big Machine Records, it was an immediate yes from me. Our album will highlight just how great the Mötley Crüe song catalog is. At the end of the day, that's what will stand the test of time."     More artists will be announced soon.   Also yesterday, the Crüe announced they will end their touring career at the end of 2015.

The Final Tour will begin July 2 in Grand Rapids, Mich., with the North American dates scheduled through November 2014. The 2015 leg of the tour will include international dates. Alice Cooper will be the tour's special guest.
