It’s not just new artists that will be making waves in country music this year, there are also some big names artists that will be releasing new studio albums. Of course, it’s hard to say just when these artists will be dropping their new albums but nevertheless these are some of the albums we’re excited for this year.
The reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year closed out 2014 by working on his sixth studio album. His previous release Crash My Party produced five singles and garnered recognition at all of the major country award shows. We expect much of the sam when Bryan releases his next LP this year.
Keith’s next record will be entitled 35 MPH Town and feature “Drunk Americans” as it’s lead single. The record was supposed to be released in early December, yet got pushed back for undisclosed reasons. When it’s eventually released it’ll be interesting to see if it’s an better than Keith’s previous two albums Clancy’s Tavern and Hope on the Rocks which were average at best.
Urban’s previous release, Fuse, was his most successful album this decade. He’ll look to build off that success when he releases his ninth studio album in 2015. Expect it to sound similar to Fuse, Urban will look to capitalize on the success he found there.
Bryant’s debut EP was our favorite EP of 2014, which makes us that much more excited for the full length project. The record is expected to be released in the first quarter of 2015 and will only feature tracks penned by Bryant himself. When you combine his songwriting ability and strong musical knowledge the results are impressive.
It’s not just fans that have been patiently awaiting this sophomore album, Kip himself has also expressed his frustration in the delayed release. The record is complete and our sources have told us that it’s expected to drop in the first quarter of 2015. When it does we expect big things. Moore found himself with three top five singles off his debut album and this record is likely to produce much of the same.
