Bonnie 'Prince' Billy Sings Greatest Palace Music is an album by Bonnie 'Prince' Billy. It features new recordings of songs from his Palace music era (1993–1997), recorded in Nashville, Tennessee with a large group of country session musicians. The lo-fi nature of the songs' original recordings was abandoned in favour of a more conventionally polished country sound. Guest musicians include Eddie Bayers, Stuart Duncan, Mark Fain, Mike Johnson, Hargus "Pig" Robbins, Andrew Bird and Bruce Watkins.
