(AP) - Usually it takes a while for a new artist to get top singers to work with them on an album. But this new singer isn't your usual artist.

Her name is Mary Sarah - and she will have country music legends Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton and Merle Haggard on her first go-round, titled "Bridges."

Sarah says she got help with some of the collaborations from singer-songwriter Freddy Powers, a close friend of Nelson and Haggard. She says it took "miracle after miracle" to get so many big names on the album - and all, as she put it, "on a handshake."

Here's a taste of the new album, Mary Sarah with the late legendary Ray Price singing the classic 'Heartache's By The Number'.
