August 8, 2006--Jerry Lee Lewis will release a new studio album, Last Man Standing, September 26, featuring a who's who of guest artists. The CD pairs Jerry Lee with country, R&B and pop music superstars ripping their way through 21 classic songs. Artists performing duets with Jerry Lee include Toby Keith ("Old Glory"); George Jones ("Don't Be Ashamed Of Your Age"); Willie Nelson ("A Couple More Years"); Kris Kristofferson ("The Pilgrim: Chapter 33"); and Merle Haggard ("Just a-Bummin' Around").
Discovered by Sun Records Sam Phillips in 1954, Jerry Lee Lewis exploded on the scene in 1957 with his groundbreaking hit "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin On." His follow-up hit in that same year, "Great Balls of Fire," cemented his place as a rock n roll icon. Those songs also topped the country charts.
