The album on which The Doobie Brothers reboot their classics with various country music collaborators will be out this fall. Co-founder Patrick Simmons tells us the collection, which may be titled Southtown, could also become the basis of a TV special.

"I wouldn't be surprised that something like that would come about. We did a lot of filming in the studio while we were working on the album as well. So that's kind of something that might find its way to a network somewhere at some point."

Patrick Simmons says longevity means more to the Doobie Brothers than being in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame...

"We didn't get in this business to get awards or anything. We play music because we love it and that's what it's all about for us. You know, I think the reward is in the playing and in the performing. We feel pretty darn fortunate to have this kind of longevity with the band, and still be working 40, almost 45 years and still be out here playing and enjoying ourselves."

The Doobie Brothers' tour with Peter Frampton continues tomorrow (Tuesday) at the Sands in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

The band recently surprised the crowd at Fenway Park, as they joined the Zac Brown Band for "Black Water"...
