Veteran country artist Randy Travis is working on a duets album that will be released early next year to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his his first album on a major label. On the duets album, he’ll partner with Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, Josh Turner, Tim McGraw, John Anderson, and more.

Just last year, Carrie Underwood released a new version of Randy’s “I Told You So,” and she ended up bringing Randy into the studio to turn it into a duet, eventually winning a Grammy Award with it. Appropriately, Carrie’s planning on joining Randy for this album as well.

“She wants to do something old,” Randy noted, “and I don’t even know what we’re going to do yet.”

The album is expected to come out during the first half of 2011, but it’s not the first time Randy’s tackled a major duets release. His 1990 CD Heroes & Friends featured a dozen guest artists, including Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Dolly Parton, George Jones, Roy Rogers, Clint Eastwood and Tammy Wynette.
