Big news from the Zane Williams camp! The celebrated Texas songwriter just announced his new album, Bringin' Country Back. And on top of that, he's got a slew of tour dates lined up to support it.
Williams will release his sixth studio album on Oct. 21. The album features eleven new tunes, including the recently released "Bringin' Country Back." Which country, you ask? Well, from the sounds of the first single, a hearty mix of 70s, 80s and 90s country.
Bringin' Country Back promises to be a turning point in Williams' career. "Musically, I was able to achieve my vision better than I have in the past," Williams says. "This is authentic, independent, country music for adults. It's poetry for the working man."
He wrote all eleven songs on the record, including the album-ending "Willie's Road," a tribute to Willie Nelson. Williams just formed his own independent label, "Texas Like That Records," for the release.
Williams spent years in Nashville as a writer. He knows the inner-workings of the music machine. That experience likely helped Williams in creating what may be his most focused, finely tuned offering yet.
In addition to the release, Williams has some exciting headlining shows coming up, too. They include Billy Bob's in Ft. Worth, Texas on Oct. 20 and Gruene Hall on Oct. 21. Stay tuned for more info on upcoming shows.
