Plowboy Records recently released You Don’t Know Me, an Eddy Arnold tribute album featuring appearances from artists like Frank Black, Bobby Bare, Jr. and Alejandro Escovedo. Produced by Cheetah Chrome, the album celebrates Arnold’s 70-year career.

“Eddy Arnold was always a household favorite,” said Escovedo. “My father was a lover of crooners and great voices. My mother loved him, too. He was one of those guys playing in our house all the time, along with Sinatra and Nat King Cole. We heard his voice a lot.”

Escovedo chose to record the track “It’s A Sin.”

”’Its A Sin’ is one of my favorite songs, not only of Eddy’s, but of all time,” said Escovedo. “So we jumped at the chance to record this one.”
