Cass County is the fifth solo studio album by American singer-songwriter Don Henley, released in September 2015 via Capitol Records.

Cass County is Don Henley's first new solo album in 15 years since 2000's Inside Job, and is named after the northeastern Texas county in which Don Henley was raised.

Cass County was produced by Don Henley and Stan Lynch, who also co- wrote 11 of the songs on the album, and represents both Henley’s roots and the next stop on his creative journey. “I was born and raised in Texas. I'm a Southerner and a Texan. So this is a natural progression for me. It's who I am and where I come from,” says Don Henley.

Recorded primarily in Nashville, Tennessee, and Dallas, Texas, the album includes guest appearances from Merle Haggard, Miranda Lambert, Mick Jagger, Martina McBride, Jamey Johnson, Alison Krauss, Vince Gill and Dolly Parton.

When asked about making the album, Henley exclaimed, “I can truthfully say, I enjoyed making this record more than any record I’ve made in my career because of the people who participated. John Sebastian was dead right in 1965 or 1966 when he wrote that song ‘Nashville Cats.’ It’s still true all these years later. There are some amazing musicians here.”

Upon its release, Cass County received generally positive reviews from music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 72 based on 9 reviews, which indicates "generally favorable reviews". David Fricke of Rolling Stone said, "Written and produced with Stan Lynch, the original drummer in Tom Petty's Heartbreakers, Cass County is meticulously crafted, sharply written and absolutely free of neo-country additives like reheated Seventies-rock bombast and Twitter-verse vernacular".

The album debuted at number three on the US Billboard 200 and number one on the US Top Country Albums on its release. It was also the top selling album of the week, with 87,000 copies of pure albums sold in the United States. The album reached #7 in the UK Albums charts and #23 on the Australian ARIA Albums charts.

Check out a couple of tracks from the album:  When I Stop Dreaming, Bramble Rose, Take A Picture of This, The Cost of Living, The Old Flame and Train In The Distance.

This is the Limited Deluxe Edition Double Album 2LP Record set on 180 Gram Vinyl housed in a Gatefold Sleeve with 18 Page Booklet, pressed in Europe.
