Ronald Isley is back in the studio
R&B veteran Ronald Isley is fresh out of prison and headed back to the recording studio after serving a three-year sentence for tax evasion.
In a recent radio interview, the Isley Brothers member said his next album will be an â€œall starâ€ effort, featuring some of todayâ€™s popular acts as well as some veteran artists.
The legendary performer also said that his time behind bars was challenging.
â€œ(I was) talking to young people and crying with them and people that were gonna be in there some years and that part really hurts,â€ Isley said, according to the Web site Singers Room. â€œThey (inmates) looked up to me.â€
The singer said he was able to keep his spirits high by participating in music activities.
â€œI was working at the chapel and I did gospel shows every week,â€ he says. â€œThat kept me up.â€
