Cameran Nelson is preparing to release his sophomore album, Good Thing Going, and he's giving readers of The Boot an exclusive first listen to all of the songs on the new record.

The Texan put out his debut record, Happy to Beer, in 2013, before partnering with Thirty Tigers to release Good Thing Going. Nelson's new 12-track project includes the uptempo "Shotgun" and "The Little That We're Livin' On," the tender "You Can Still Wear White" and "Lady's Man," and his current single, "Nothing's Got Nothing."

Nelson grew up around music, playing bass in his dad's band when he was 13 years old, then selling merchandise for the late Gary Stewart when he was just 15 years old. It was that early exposure to music that inspired in Nelson a drive to excel at his talent.

"Getting on stage and playing is just that: play! The work is over, and we get to cut loose and have some fun," Nelson says about his live performances. "We like to throw in our influences here and there, which can get diverse and fun at times."

Nelson, who has shared the stage with high-profile artists such as Lee Brice, Dustin Lynch, the Randy Rogers Band, Jack Ingram, Kevin Fowler and Aaron Watson, among others, will hit the road this winter to perform songs from Good Thing Going. A list of all of his upcoming shows is available on his website.

Good Thing Going is set for release on Friday (Dec. 4) and is available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon.
