THE DUO PREVIEWED “(HEY WON’T YOU PLAY) ANOTHER SOMEBODY DONE SOMEBODY WRONG SONG” FROM THOMAS’ UPCOMING APRIL 2 “THE LIVING ROOM SESSIONS” ALBUM
Nashville, TN—B.J. Thomas and Richard Marx performed on March 2 for the first time together in front of a live audience to a packed-house on the historic radio show “The Grand Ole Opry.” Thomas, who performed two songs on the Saturday night program, was joined by Marx on his legendary hit single “(Hey, Won’t You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song.” The song was a live preview of the recorded version that will be included on Thomas’ new collection of acoustic, stripped-down hit recordings titled THE LIVING ROOM SESSIONS which will be released on April 2 on Wrinkled Records.
THE LIVING ROOM SESSIONS will celebrate almost 47 years since Thomas’ first Gold-selling hit on Scepter Records with an album of re-imaginings of 12 of his most renowned songs — recorded with an all-star lineup of guest vocalists: Vince Gill (“I Just Can’t Help Believing”), Keb’ Mo’ (“Most of All”), Lyle Lovett (“Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head”), Richard Marx (“(Hey Won’t You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song”), Isaac Slade, lead singer of The Fray (“I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry”) and Steve Tyrell (“Rock and Roll Lullaby”). Thomas will perform with The Roots on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on April 2, street date of the release.
