It has been nearly four years since Charlie Worsham's expressive and heartfelt debut album, Rubberband. In that time, the performer has toured the country quite extensively, building upon his live pedigree and slowly but surely growing a loyal fanbase. With a new year fresh in his mind, Worsham lays out plans to release the long-awaited follow-up, the thoughtfully titled Beginning of Things--the new record is set for an April 21 release via Warner Nashville.
The album is produced by industry heavyweights Frank Liddell (Miranda Lambert, Lee Ann Womack) and Eric Masse (Caitlin Rose, Andrew Combs, Mikky Ekko). The title cut, written by Abe Stoklasa (Tim McGraw, Chris Lane, Charles Kelley) and Donovan Woods (Alan Doyle, McGraw, Kelley), is now streaming on NPR Music, courtesy of Ann Powers.
Beginning of Things is now up for pre-order on iTunes.
