With all the stressful goings-on in the world today, it’s nice to take a moment now and then to appreciate the good and the kind. Patrick Stewart, in support of the International Rescue Committee, has released a charity album of five country classics.
The gag, if not apparent from the website, is that it’s not really a full length album but a small sampler, available for $10 as a digital download from indie music store CDbaby. The five track listing is as follows:
- Buttons and Bows
- Don’t Fence Me In
- I’m An Old Cowhand
- Here Comes Santa Clause
All proceeds will go to the aforementioned International Rescue Committee. You can read more about them here:
The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their future.
Thanks to the generosity of IRC supporters, more than 23 million people benefited from IRC programs and those of our partner organizations in 2015—nearly 5.5 millionmore individuals than we were able to reach in 2014.
If you’re inclined to open your wallet for a good cause, you’ll be rewarded with a small but delightful collection of songs from one of nerd culture’s most beloved public figures. Patrick Stewart has been longtime advocate of humanitarian causes, and his latest contribution is inspired.
