With three Number One singles and two consecutive gold albums in the Nineties, Ty Herndon was one of the decade’s most successful country artists on Sony Music Nashville’s Epic imprint. On November 11th, Herndon returns to the Sony family as his long-awaited LP, House on Fire, will be released via BFD through Sony/RED Distribution. The project, consisting of 12 new songs, was co-produced by Herndon and Erik Halbig. Drew Davis joins as co-producer on six of the cuts.
House on Fire is Herndon’s first album since 2013’s Lies I Told Myself, and will mark his first LP since coming out publicly as a gay man in November 2014.
“I wasn’t even sure if I would get to continue making music,” Herndon told Rolling Stone Country at his first annual Concert for Love and Acceptance last summer. “I knew I would make it somehow but I didn’t know if I would be making country music. I was so wrong about that. The fans have spoken. And I think it’s the very best album I’ve done since my first one, What Mattered Most. Because it’s so full of truth and makes the reason I do music so much more real to me.”
Herndon recently debuted songs from the album in London, where he served as a headliner for the Nashville Meets London Festival. Previous hits from the Alabama-raised singer included “What Mattered Most,” “I Want My Goodbye Back,” “Living in a Moment” and “It Must Be Love,” the latter two of which topped the country singles chart.
