Vote for the Most Anticipated Album of February 2016
Country music’s new release schedule is ramping up in February 2016: Eleven projects are set to make their debut during the second month of the year. Which one will earn the title of The Boot’s Album of the Month?
Feb. 5 will bring four new country records to the shelves: Charles Kelley‘s solo debut, The Driver; Koncert V Praze (In Prague — Live), a Johnny Cash album that is receiving its first non-box set release; Lucinda Williams‘ experimental and personal The Ghosts of Highway 20; and the Infamous Stringdusters‘ Ladies & Gentlemen, filled with special guests.
The month’s new music will continue on Feb. 12, when Vince Gill will debut Down to My Last Bad Habit; Wynonna Judd and her band the Big Noise will release their first-ever album together, Wynonna & the Big Noise; and Lorrie Morgan‘s first solo album in five years, Letting Go … Slow, will hit the shelves.
Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14) will see the release of a particularly special record: Joey + Rory‘s Hymns That Are Important to Us. The husband-and-wife duo began working on the project — a dream of Joey Feek’s — before Feek received her terminal cancer diagnosis, and proceeds will benefit the Loeys-Dietz Syndrome Foundation, in honor of the Feeks’ daughter Indiana‘s best friend Scout.
On Feb. 19, ’90s alt-rock band Sister Hazel are set to release their debut country disc, Lighter in the Dark. And finally, on Feb. 26, Bonnie Raitt will be releasing Dig in Deep; Willie Nelson will debut Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin; and Chuck Wicks will put out his long-awaited sophomore project, Turning Point.
