Downton Abbey fans (read: obsessed stalkers), rejoice! Lady Mary and Countess of Grantham, or as they’re known in the real world, Michelle Dockery and Elizabeth McGovern are set to release an album.
When she’s not being completely lovely and gracious as Cora, Countess of Grantham, McGovern is rocking out with her jazz band Sadie and the Hotheads. If that weren’t enough, Dockery likes to make her way down to the local pub to lend her vocals to the band. There’s probably a Crawley jazz fest going on right now somewhere in Hampshire and it probably involves a bunch of pints, too! Where’s our invitation?
It was McGovern who broke the exciting news to the UK Telegraph during a screening of My Week With Marilyn hosted by Colin Firth stating that the album will be coming out “later this year,” while Dockery added “It’s been so much fun. Elizabeth is a great songwriter.”
Although little information is known about the album that these two might be releasing, except that it has a good chance of falling under the jazz genre, we wondered what an album by their characters would be like and be called. We decided to make some guesses of our own.
