Don Henley is in the studio working on an album of country covers.

The Eagles founder is reported to be spending this week in Nashville working on the record with producer/drummer Stan Lynch (Tom Petty & the Heartbeakers), according to Eagles fan site L&M's Eagles Fastlane. The album is also expected to feature an all-star cast.

The album will make an interesting bookend to the 1993 album of country covers of Eagles songs 'Common Thread'. That record featured acts like Travis Tritt, Clint Black, Alan Jackson, Vince Gill. Tanya Tucker and Brooks & Dunn singing the songs of the Eagles. The 'Common Thread' album was the catalyst for the Eagles reforming one-year later.

Don Henley has recorded four solo albums, 'I Can't Stand Still' (1982), 'Building The Perfect Beast' (1984), 'The End of the Innocence' (1989) and 'Inside Job' (2000).

Also during that period, the Eagles released the live album 'Hell Freezes Over' and the studio album 'Long Road Out Of Eden'.

The album will be the second of the solo albums we can expect this year. Joe Walsh told Undercover in December that he will release his first solo album in 18-years in May, 2011.

Last year, Timothy B. Schmit released his solo album 'Expando. Glenn Frey's last solo album was 'Strange Weather' in 1992.
