Tom Wopat releases new album

From the web folks of Tom Wopat, our own Luke Duke of "The Dukes of Hazzard" ...

We are excited to finally unveil what Tom has been working on for the past few months -- his brand new album!

That's right -- on February 12, 2013, Tom's eighth studio album, "I've Got Your Number," will be released! Backed by a 30-piece orchestra, with this album Tom fulfills his desire to focus on what he describes as "the “orchestra/big band hybrid of the ‘60s and ‘70s.” “Like the Bobby Darin stuff,” he says. “Frank Sinatra did big band then too, everybody did. And we really wanted to go for that -- in the standards as well as the contemporary tunes. We’ve evoked the spirit of the New York supper club era and the cool vibe of the 'Mad Men' days. The recording swings hard and there’s a lot of really fine music.”

The album romps through a wide breadth of songs, ranging between selections from the American Songbook to unique versions of songs by popular artists including James Taylor, Paul Simon, Judy Collins, Bruce Springsteen and more. Plus, the album includes two brand new songs written by Tom himself! Visit to read the full press release with more details about the album.

AND - we couldn't tell you about the record without letting you hear some music! Just click HERE to listen to the song "The Good Life" now! Make sure to leave a comment on Youtube to let Tom know what you think!
