Texas-based Americana power couple Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis will usher in the summer with the release of Beautiful Lie, their fourth album as a duo. Out June 21st on Robison’s the Next Waltz label, it’s the pair’s follow-up to the 2014 collaboration Our Year. The album’s first single “Nobody’s Perfect,” written by Robison, will be released May 10th, and a week later the two will embark on a joint tour which runs through August.

Taking its title track from a soulful cut on the Amazing Rhythm Aces’ 1975 debut LP, Beautiful Lie also includes three more cuts penned by Robison and a co-write with Jack Ingram on “Astrodome.” Other tracks include the mournful ballad “Lost My Best,” penned by “Thinkin’ Problem” singer-songwriter and Uncle Walt’s Band veteran David Ball and three tunes by Adam Wright — including one co-written with his wife, Shannon. Wright recently contributed several tracks to Lee Ann Womack’s The Lonely, The Lonesome & the Gone.

Willis’ most recent album was the 2018 soul-and-country gem Back Being Blue, her first solo effort since 2007, while Robison’s 2017 effort Bruce Robison & the Back Porch Band, was his first solo disc in eight years.
