Vote for the Most Anticipated Album of February 2014
Country fans have plenty of great new music to look forward to next month. February of 2014 will see new releases from country veterans and newcomers, and two of country's top-selling acts.
The month kicks off with the self-titled debut from Eric Paslay, who is best-known to country fans as one of the writers behind hit songs including 'Even if It Breaks Your Heart,' 'Barefoot Blue Jean Night,' 'Angel Eyes' and more.
Suzy Bogguss is slated to drop her new project, 'Lucky,' on Feb. 4. The album features the iconic singer in new interpretations of songs written by Merle Haggard.
Banjo legend Tony Trischka will also release his latest, 'Great Big World,' on Feb. 4 via Rounder. The album features guest appearances by a host of notables, including Steve Martin, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Larry Campbell and more.
Eric Church will deliver 'The Outsiders' on Feb. 11. The new album takes the outlaw country singer even further outside the box, incorporating harder rock influences into his already edgy sound. The title song is already a hit, and the singer recently released the album's second single, 'Give Me Back My Hometown.'
Frankie Ballard returns with 'Sunshine & Whiskey' on Feb. 11. His sophomore album is off to a strong start with the release of the single 'Helluva Life.'
Cole Swindell is set to drop his self-titled debut album on Feb. 18. The singer -- who used to work for Luke Bryan selling t-shirts -- has already scored a huge hit with 'Chillin' It.' and he'll be opening for his former employer in some of the biggest venues in the country this summer.
Singer-songwriter Will Kimbrough will also release his seventh album, 'Sideshow Love,' on Feb. 18. The musician calls it his best album yet, and glowing advance reviews seem to agree.
Dierks Bentley is set to release his own seventh album, 'Riser,' on Feb. 25. Featuring a mix of serious, darker songs and up-tempo, fun material, the album shows Bentley stretching himself musically, as evidenced by the single, 'I Hold On,' which is currently in release.
