Wynonna Judd and Lainey Wilson’s cover of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers’ classic “Refugee” is out now, produced by Cactus Moser. Refugee arrives as the fifth single from the highly-anticipated Petty Country: A Country Music Celebration of Tom Petty, with a video featuring behind-the-scenes footage of Judd and Wilson recording their version.

Wilson said of recording with Judd: “That was one of the coolest experiences of my life. My gosh, every time I tried to use that growl in my voice, I was trying to channel my inner Wynonna. Everybody wants an inner Wynonna.”

Several tracks have been shared ahead of the album’s release, including Steve Earle’s rendition of “Yer So Bad,” Chris Stapleton’s take on Tom Petty’s “I Should Have Known It,” Dolly Parton’s version of “Southern Accents, and Dierks Bentley’s version of the Petty classic, “American Girl.”
