NASHVILLE (AP) — LeAnn Rimes, Eli Young Band and Florida Georgia Line are among the musicians who will put their spin on Motley Crue’s songs.

“Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute to Motley Crue” will also feature Justin Moore doing “Home Sweet Home,” Brantley Gilbert remaking “Girls Girls Girls,” Gretchen Wilson covering “Wild Side” and Rascal Flatts tackling “Kickstart My Heart.”

Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx says they did not make the record for Motley Crue fans, but for country fans who are also rock fans.

“Nashville Outlaws” comes out July 8.
