Default Breaking News;Ali's New Album

This news might not please everybody on this site but a friend of mine is in the know on these things and assures me that the following information is definitely absolutely correct at the time of writing.
As he has previously mentioned in interviews going back 3 years Ali has been in the studio working on a new album which is now complete, however Astro is now adding a couple of new tracks as well.
Well i can now reveal that in a huge u-turn after slagging off UB40's last album which was universally well received by fans and critics alike, he has also done a reggae album of country covers reflecting on his solo career.The album tracks are as followed-

I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry - Hank Williams
Friends In Low Places - Garth Brooks (one for his management team)
A Fool Such As I - Hank Snow
Born To Lose - Tedd Daffans Texans
One More Last Chance - Vince Gill
You Don't Seem To Miss Me - Patty Loveless (one aimed at UB40)
I Got Mexico - Eddy Rowen (a boast about his fanbase)
Foolish Pride - Travis Tritt
I'm A Ramblin Man - Waylon Jennings
Silver Medals And Sweet Memories - Statler Brothers
Wide Open Spaces - Dixie Chicks (one for his fans)
Old Dogs,Children And Watermelon Wine - Tom T Hall (another fan one)
Old Enough To Know Better - Wade Hayes
If You've Got The Money I've Got The Time - Lefty Frizzell

the Astro tracks are believed to be two of the following three -

I'm Not Strong Enough To Say No - Blackhawk
Coward Of The County - Kenny Rodgers
Somebody Lied - Ricky Van Shelton

Apparently these tracks are close to being completed, however i cannot verify the rumour that when the backing band approached Ali about the use of steel guitars his reply was "yes and see if you can steal some drums and keyboards too coz after this album we wont be able to afford any".
