What an exciting day in country music! Three new country albums are released today.
Keith Urban’s Get Closer, is his 7th studio album. Not only is Keith releasing his 7th studio album, but he is also releasing a Deluxe Edition of Get Closer through Target. The Deluxe Edition will contain three additional studio tracks and four live recordings from his tour Love, Pain and the Whole Crazy World Tour, along with the album’s eight original songs.
Also hitting store today, Nothing Like This, the new album from Rascal Flatts. The new album features their latest hit Why Wait. The guys are featured on the cover of this week’s Country Weekly magazine and hit the road in January to bring their new music to their fans.
Lastly, Kid Rock has a new release today titled Born Free. This album introduces us to the singer’s country roots and steps away from the rap and rock his fans are used to. Kid Rock says that is just the kind of artist he is though. “That’s the music I love. It’s who I am as a person, you know. People say I’m creatively confused or whatever they want to call it, but I just honestly enjoy music. I enjoy life, enjoy music, enjoy everything about it, so to deny any part of that would just be irresponsible I think on my …my artistic values.” The ablum features twelve songs, including the title track and first single, including cameos by Bob Seger, Sheryl Crow, Zac Brown, Martina McBride and rapper T.I.
