NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Patty Loveless has found inspiration from a queen of classic rock: Stevie Nicks.

The 51-year-old country singer recorded Nicks’ Fleetwood Mac song “Silver Springs” for a new CD to raise money for the Imus Ranch, a working New Mexico cattle ranch founded by radio personality Don Imus and his wife, Deirdre, to help ill children.

“The Imus Ranch Record,” to be released Tuesday, also includes contributions from Delbert McClinton, Lucinda Williams, Levon Helm, Raul Malo, Little Richard, Randy Travis, Big & Rich, Willie Nelson, Dwight Yoakam, Bekka Bramlett, John Hiatt and Vince Gill.

Imus selected the artists and the songs.

Nelson does the standard “What a Difference a Day Makes,” Big & Rich do the Beastie Boys’ “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party)” and Williams does Nelson’s and Waylon Jennings’ “Mama Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys.” Gill cut Porter Wagoner’s “Satisfied Mind” the day after Wagoner’s funeral.
