Charlie Worsham's long-awaited sophomore album is less than a month away. Beginning of Things (out April 21) promises to be one of the year's best releases in mainstream country, and judging by his new single, things are shaping up quite nicely. "Cut Your Groove," a decidedly sweltering piece about finding your own groove when things go south, highlights the best parts of Worsham's classic voice. He penned the song with Oscar Charles, and it is expected to hit radio April 11, a few days ahead of the new LP.
"You don't have to be famous to be famous," he sings.
Early next month, Worsham hits the road with Brandy Clark on a joint-tour. "Brandy is everything I love about country music. She speaks her truth, and she breaks new ground with every song she writes. She's beloved by the Nashville community, and each time she and I have collaborated, it's been a blast," he said. "This tour is going to be so much fun, and I know the fans who fill up the venue each night will bring with them the same deep love for music that we have as artists."
Beginning of Things features songwriting contributions from the likes of Jeff Hyde, Ryan Tyndell, Shane McAnally, Luke Dick and Ben Hayslip, among others.
