Clay Walker is about to release a new record this summer. The album will be called "Long Live Cowboy" and the singer promises it would be pure traditional country music. Yee Haw!
Chris Young revealed his guests on the upcoming record, which will feature duets with Vince Gill and 2013's The Voice winner Cassadee Pope. Chris also co-produces the new album, which should come out later this year.
Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson are teaming up once again and on June 2 they will release a new album called "Django And Jimmie". They already released a music video for the first single "It's All Going To Pot". Now that's bro-country!
Popular duo Montgomery Gentry is going to release a new album on June 9. The record is named "Folks Like Us" and the title song is a current single.
Willie Nelson finally wrote his own memoir. Look for a book named "It’s a Long Story: My Life".
Even though lead vocals on most Brooks & Dunn hit songs were sung by Ronnie Dunn, also Kix Brooks made a huge mark in the history of country music with classic tunes like "Lost And Found", "Rock My World (Little Country Girl)", You're Gonna Miss Me (When I'm Gone)" and "Mama Don't Get Dressed Up For Nothing". After Kix and Ronnie parted ways to pursue solo carreers in 2010, Ronnie Dunn released a spectacular self-titled debut album in June 2011 and Kix plans to hit it off this year. His first single is a song called "New to This Town", which features a superstar guest Joe Walsh of the Eagles. The song is climbing up the charts and earlier this week Kix released an official music video.
Kix is no stranger to doing solo, though. He already established himself as a top notch songwriter in Nashville in the early 80's and wrote a number of successful hits (i.e. Highway 101's "Who's Lonely Now" or McBride & The Ride's "Sacred Ground"). He also released a debut album on Capitol Records in 1989.
Ronnie Dunn released two solo singles in the early 80's and resumed his solo career with a marvelous debut album in 2011. The first singles off that album were "Bleed Red", "Cost Of Livin'" and the current smash hit "Let The Cowboy Rock".
