Anybody looking forward to particular releases next year? Country Music Central is my go-to place for upcoming releases, and it looks like things are typically slow for the first quarter.
I’m looking forward to the new Dierks Bentley and the Willie Nelson/Asleep at the Wheel collaboration. The new year should also bring studio albums from Keith Urban and Tim McGraw. More than anything else, I’d like some new music from Shania Twain and Faith Hill, who have gone quite a few years without a proper new album.
But what I’m most pumped for right now is the February release of Wynonna’s Sing – Chapter 1. Listening to the samples below, this sounds like it will be the most interesting covers collection since Dwight Yoakam’s.
What releases are you looking forward to and hoping for in 2009?
