CMT: Roy Orbison tracks headed to Rock Band

While it hasn’t been officially confirmed, it appears that a Roy Orbison track pack is headed to Rock Band in the near future. 

The news comes from an online blurb advertising Country Music Television’s Top 20 Countdown of the Year, which airs on Friday, December 26 at 1PM ET/PT. More specifically, the Web site states: “Plus, get details on how you can rock out with The Soul of Rock and Roll with the upcoming release of the Roy Orbison Pack for Rock Band 2 consoles.”

Yup, well, there’s no mistaking those words. It looks like we’ll have to wait until Friday for more details, although you’d sooner find me scraping paint off of a wall for fun before I’d watch CMT. Word has it that some people have spotted Rock Band ads on the official forums stating that this pack would contain six songs. I think I’ll just wait for the Harmonix/MTV Games press release to hit my inbox, eh? 

Besides the obvious — “Oh, Pretty Woman” or “You Got It,” for instance — what Orbison songs would you like to play in Rock Band?

[Thanks, Andrew!]
