Rock Band Goes A Little Bit Country

Harmonix and MTV Games, along with distribution partner Electronic Arts Inc. announced plans for a July 21, 2009 North American release of ROCK BAND COUNTRY TRACK PACK for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 2.

“ROCK BAND loves country music too, and these tracks are among the most fun to play of any we've released to date,” said Paul DeGooyer, SVP of Electronic Games & Music for MTV Networks Music Group. “We’ve received a ton of requests from fans to bring more country to the game, and our artist partners responded. We're very excited to be able to offer this set, featuring some of the greatest songs ever recorded.”

ROCK BAND COUNTRY TRACK PACK is a standalone software product that allows owners of ROCK BAND and ROCK BAND 2 to keep the party going with 21 songs from an outstanding mix of country artists, including Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, Shania Twain, Rascal Flatts and the legendary Kenny Rogers. Many of the tracks will be exclusive to the ROCK BAND COUNTRY TRACK PACK disc for a limited time before joining the ROCK BAND Music Store as downloadable content. Additional artists and songs from the track list will be announced in the coming months.

Fans who buy the ROCK BAND COUNTRY TRACK PACK for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 can play directly from the disc or download the songs onto their consoles’ hard drives through a free offer with Xbox LIVE or the PlayStation Network. Once downloaded, the songs will automatically appear in the player’s custom ROCK BAND library and can be integrated into setlists and played in all game modes.

The game will sell for $29.99.
