Nashville, TN (Top40 Charts) B.J. Thomas, a true American institution whose iconic pop, country and gospel hits defined their respective generations and now transcend them, has found a unique way to celebrate an incredible half a century in music and some 47 years since his first gold selling hit on Scepter Records: an album of stripped down, intimate acoustic re-imaginings of 12 of his most renowned songs. With special guest artists Vince Gill , Lyle Lovett , Keb' Mo', Isaac Slade of The Fray, Richard Marx , Steve Tyrell , and more, joining him on his most memorable songs, Thomas releases "The Living Room Sessions" this spring (release date TBA) on Wrinkled Records.

The singer, a five-time Grammy and two-time Dove Award winner who has sold more than 70 million records and is ranked in Billboard's Top 50 most played artists over the past 50 years, invites longtime fans and newcomers alike into his "living room" for never-heard-before arrangements of his legendary classics. The Living Room Sessions also includes four solo performances by Thomas: "Don't Worry Baby," "Eyes of a New York Woman," "Whatever Happened To Old Fashioned Love" and "Everybody's Out of Town."

Working with famed veteran country music producer Kyle Lehning (Randy Travis and Willie Nelson) at Sound Stage Studio in Nashville, and backed by some of Music City's finest sessions musicians, Thomas recorded many of these as duets from his "wish list" of guest artists from different genres including Richard Marx ("(Hey Won't You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song"), Vince Gill ("I Just Can't Help Believing"), Keb' Mo' ("Most of All"), Lyle Lovett ("Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head"), Isaac Slade , lead singer of The Fray ("I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry") and Steve Tyrell ("Rock and Roll Lullaby").

Thomas' Oscar winning "Raindrops" in "Spider-Man 2" in 2004, underscored the singer's continued place as an identifiable cultural touchstone. He continues to perform 60-80 shows annually throughout the U.S. and internationally--everywhere from Australia and Hong Kong to Paris (this coming March 2013), with plans to tour with the release of "The Living Room Sessions."
