Album of the Month (April 2017): Charlie Worsham, ‘Beginning of Things’

Charlie Worsham Beginning of Things
Warner Music Nashville

With 38.35 percent of votes in The Boot’s April 2017 Album of the Month poll, The Boot’s readers have elected Charlie Worsham‘s forthcoming new album, Beginning of Things, as The Boot’s April 2017 Album of the Month.

Worsham’s sophomore album, Beginning of Things is scheduled for release on April 21. The singer-songwriter first revealed his plans for the project in late January.

“I had fallen out of love with music, and making this record put me back in love with it on a level I hadn’t felt since I was a teenager,” Worsham admits in a press release. “Beginning of Things was a challenge in surrendering control and trusting my own talent.”

Of the 13 songs on Beginning of Things, Worsham served as a co-writer on nine of them; his co-writers include Brent Cobb, Shane McAnally and more. Aside from its title track, the disc’s other songs include “Southern By the Grace of God,” “Take Me Drunk” and “Birthday Suit.”

“I’m confident that these songs and these recordings capture my musical geography and personal truth,” Worsham says, “and at the end of the day, I’m convinced that is the ultimate purpose of an artist — to speak one’s truth.”

Frank Liddell and Eric Masse co-produced Beginning of Things; Arturo Buenahora Jr. served as its executive producer. In March, Worsham shared “Cut Your Groove” — Track No. 8 on the record — as the disc’s first single; the artist co-wrote the song with Oscar Charles.

“[“Cut Your Groove”] is a pep talk you can give yourself,” Worsham explains. “It says no matter who you are or where you are in your life, there is no other person on the planet now or in the future who has the unique story you have to tell … Sharing your story is priceless.”

Fans can pre-order Beginning of Things via iTunes. Worsham will begin a spring tour with Brandy Clark on April 6; further details can be found at CharlieWorsham.com.

Worsham’s Beginning of Things bested new releases from the late Joey Feek, Sam OutlawBrad PaisleyWillie Nelson and more to win the April 2017 Album of the Month title.
