"Darius Rucker/True Believers"
New Album 'True Believers' To Be Released May 21, 2013
Darius has set a release date for his third country studio album, True Believers. Will you be picking up your copy on Tuesday, May 21st?
“I’m very proud of this record,” Rucker says. “The songs, the co-writes, the vibe – it’s all really different from what we’ve recorded and released on the past two albums, and I hope that difference resonates with the fans.”
NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 18, 2013 - Singer-songwriter Hunter Hayes has demonstrated his skillful musicianship on his self-titled Atlantic Records debut, releasing a pop-Country collection -- which has already spawned two No. 1 hit singles. As Country music's newest hot commodity, the 21-year-old has plenty to live up to, especially as he gears up to release his highly anticipated encore album. The summer disc (featuring lead single "I Want Crazy") is more like "an experiment," he says, noting a handful of once-in-a-lifetime collaborations.
"I finally get to talk about. It's one of those things...it wasn't something we had been planning," he says of new single "I Want Crazy." "This is a song I wrote not too long ago. The funny thing with 'I Want Crazy' is [it was] part of the debut record, but it wasn't written or recorded with the debut record."
"[It] says something I've always wanted to say," he explains of the album's lead single. "Real love is crazy. When you really feel it, you get into something, and you're friends look at you like 'I don't even know you anymore.' When you get into something worth keeping, you do turn into the best version of yourself you've ever been."
After years of waiting patiently for the release of their debut album, Chris Lucas and Preston Brust -- better known as the LoCash Cowboys -- will have all the reason in the world to celebrate on June 18, which is the day their self-titled project hits stores.
LoCash Cowboys will be the first album released with their new label home, Average Joes Entertainment. The duo inked their deal with Colt Ford's independent label back in December, and it has been a rocket ship ride to the finish line. The final result is Brust and Lucas' 12-track project that will offer fans a little bit of everything -- sentimental tunes about family, fun andflirtatious songs, and roof-raising smashes that hone in on the live stage presence the two stars bring night after night.
Brust and Lucas wrote or co-wrote all but two songs on the new album. Nashville's A-list songwriter and dear friend to the LoCash Cowboys, Jeffrey Steele, can be found all over the album, being responsible for seven of the tunes on the project, including previous Top 40 hit "Keep In Mind" and "Independent Trucker," which features guest vocals by the one and only George Jones.
But their own album isn't the only place where the LoCash Cowboys' songwriting credits can be found. Just in the past year alone, Brust and Lucas have been responsible for writing Keith Urban's two-week No. 1 hit "You Gonna Fly" (along with Jaren Johnston) and Tim McGraw's Top 10 single "Truck Yeah" (along with Danny Myrick and Chris Janson).
LoCash Cowboys' lead single from their new album is "Chase a Little Love," which was penned by Brust and Jaron Boyer. The tune is set to impact country radio on April 22. Look for the accompanying video to be released in the coming weeks.
After writing hits for the Band Perry, The Henningsens are climbing the country charts with their own recordings.
The Henningsens, the family trio climbing the country charts with its single American Beautiful, has set a release date for its debut album.
American Beautiful will hit stores July 2, just in time for Independence Day.
Also, Brad Paisley has invited the group to join him on his Beat This Summer Tour, which kicks off May 9 in Maryland Heights, Mo.
The Henningsens consist of Brian Henningsen and two of his 10 children, Aaron and Clara Henningsen. Before signing with Arista Nashville, the Henningsens wrote the hits All Your LIfe and You Lie for The Band Perry. The trio also co-wrote six songs with The Band Perry for that group's new album Pioneer, which came out April 2.
This weekend, the Henningsens posted a "behind the song" clip about American Beautiful, which is currently at No. 22 on USA TODAY's Country airplay
