Jackson tells Rolling Stone:

Jack is such a talented songwriter, and a lot of his songs are done in a much different style than my own. But when I heard “Cold, Cold Night” for the first time I knew it was a song that I wanted to record some day. When the opportunity came around to pay tribute to Jack on this album I thought it was the perfect opportunity to lay it down in the studio. Shooter came in and played piano and later added all of the other instruments. I’m very pleased with how it turned out and I hope Jack approves of the job we did.
