2014 started with a big bang for country music, as several great upcoming albums will be released throughout the year. With so many new albums on the way, one thing is certain, you will definitely have at least one new favorite song from each of these artists. Check out the most anticipated upcoming country albums:
Eric Paslay: ‘Eric Paslay’
Release Date: February 4th, 2014
Just days away from being released, Eric Paslay’s self-titled 11 track album is highly anticipated by almost all true country music fans. Paslay is most-known for co-writing several successful hits performed by other bands, such as “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” and “Angel Eyes.”
Eric Church: ’The Outsiders’
Release Date: February 11th, 2014
‘The Outsiders,’ which is Church’s fourth studio album, promises to be both raw and real. Last month, Church released a dark and edgy single called ‘Give Me Back My Hometown,’ which will be included in the upcoming album. He later topped that by performing ‘A man Who Was Gonna Die Young,’ at a recent show.
Cole Swindell: ‘Cole Swindell’
Release Date: February 18th, 2014
2014 might just be the year of Cole Swindle! Last year, his popular hit single ‘Chillin It,’ was the number one selling debut single from a solo country male artist. If that’s not the perfect end to a good year, we don’t know what is. And, if 2014 is anything like 2013, Swindle is going to remain a fan favorite among many.
Dierks Bentley: ‘Riser‘
Release date: February 25, 2014
For his seventh studio album, Bentley decides to get personal — that is, you’ll see a lot of co-written songs on the 12 track album of ‘Riser.’ You’ll also get a small dose of Kacey Musgraves, Chris Stapleton, Jaren Johnston and Charlie Worsham on the album.
David Nail: ‘I’m A Fire’
Release Date: March 4th, 2014
David Nail fans everywhere are eagerly anticipating the release of his third album, ‘I’m A Fire.’ The 11 track album is a window into the last four years of David’s life and his marriage. Through it all, he walked through fire and came out of it, because of his wife.
Eli Young Band: ’10,000 Towns’
Release Date: March 4th, 2014
‘10,000 Towns’ will be released by the Eli Young Band on the same day that David Nail releases his new album, ‘I’m A Fire.’ It should be interesting to see which artist sells more copies on the date of release. ‘Drunk Last Night,’ the first single off the new album has dominated the charts, and is Gold certified.
Sara Evans: ‘Slow Me Down’
Release Date: March 11th, 2014
It’s been three years since Evans released an album, and ‘Slow Me Down’ will be the artist’s seventh studio album. The anticipated album promises to deliver powerful vocals which we’ve come to expect from Evans. The 11 track album features three songs that Evans co-wrote specifically for ‘Slow Me Down.’
Jerrod Niemann: ‘High Noon’
Release Date: March 25th, 2014
Niemann, who “uses this thing called music to search and destroy party poopers,” may be just as good at social media as he is at making music. Before announcing ‘High Noon’ to his fans, last month Niemann tweeted several hints regarding the big announcement.
‘High Noon’ will be Niemann’s third major label release. His popular single, ‘Drink to That All Night,’ which is straight off ‘High Noon’ continues to climb on the Hot 100 and Hot Country Song charts.
