After a change in title and release date, Kenny Chesney’s Cosmic Hallelujah album is finally out this month. Featuring the hit single “Noise” and brand-new Pink duet, “Setting the World on Fire,” the LP comes out October 28th, capping off a month full of long-awaited country and Americana releases.
This Friday, Americana favorites Shovels and Rope – the duo of Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst – will release Little Seeds, an album largely inspired by becoming parents for the first time, but also diving deep into darker issues like the racially motivated church shooting last year in Charleston, South Carolina.
Traditional country artist and Grand Ole Opry favorite Mo Pitney is also out with a new album this Friday — his long-awaited debut, Behind This Guitar. And another up-and-comer joining Pitney on several “new artists to watch” list, Brent Cobb will release his first album, Shine On Rainy Day.
On October 14th, Americana funny guy Jonny Fritz is out with Sweet Creep, while the Mavericks will release All Night Live, Volume 1. Muddy Magnolias – the duo of Jessy Wilson and Kallie North – will release Broken People. And the following week, Augustana lead singer Dan Layus is out with his new solo album, Dangerous Things.
