Kiefer Sutherland is turning his creative focus away from television and toward his longtime love of country music.
The award-winning actor has announced his plans to release his debut country album, Down in a Hole, later this year. 14 years ago, Sutherland first stepped into the music industry by founding the Ironworks record label. Now, he's prepping his own solo "folk-tinged" project, which emerged out of songwriting sessions with his label partner and best friend Jude Cole.
"It's the closest thing I've ever had to a journal or diary. All of these songs are pulled from my own personal experiences," Sutherland said in press release. "There is something very satisfying about being able to look back on my own life, good times and bad, and express those sentiments in music. As much as I have enjoyed the writing and recording process, I am experiencing great joy now being able to play these songs to a live audience, which was something I hadn't counted on."
A track listing and official release date for Down in a Hole is expected to be released in the coming weeks.
