We’re rounding up some of the biggest news in country music this week, including new music from Willie Nelson and Zac Brown Band.
Colter Wall on the Snowbank, the Policeman & His New Album
Colter Wall is getting set to release his debut self-titled album, recorded in Nashville with producer Dave Cobb. Is there anything more Canadian than finding yourself walking up a snowbank a little intoxicated, only to find a policeman? Colter says the song “Thirteen Silver Dollars” was inspired by a real confrontation with an officer back home in Saskatchewan.
Watch out for the record May 12th!
Zac Brown Band’s Love for the “Real Thing”
Zac Brown Band shared a new lyric video to go along with the track “Real Thing” off the new album, Welcome Home which is coming out May 12th (also produced by Dave Cobb). If you have a listen to the first verse, Brown expresses his love for homemade whiskey over any ol’ store bought bottle. Of course, this is a metaphor for a few other things too.
