Thursday News Round Up!
What a busy day within the music industry! Perhaps the biggest surprise of all was that announcement from Taylor Swift about the re-recording of Fearless! I've already pre-ordered my CD and t-shirt - I can't wait to hear the six previously unreleased songs too. It looks like it will come out on April 9th but Love Story is out tomorrow!
Also in the news, Carrie Underwood announced the tracklist for her gospel album called 'My Savior'. It features such classics as 'Amazing Grace' and 'The Old Rugged Cross'. That too is available to pre-order with a release date of March 26th.
Morgan Wallen issued an apology late last night after that video surfaced last week of him using a racial slur. In the video apology posted to instagram he said he had been sober now for nine days since the incident occured and that he's meeting with members of the black community. He asks fans not to defend him and appreciates that his words matter. He says he's working on becoming a better man.
There was good news for Natalie Hemby as she signed her first solo record deal with the Fantasy label. The singer songwriter behind hits such as 'Bluebird' and 'Automatic' for Lambert and 'I'll Never Love Again' from the soundtrack of 'A Star Is Born' is planning on releasing her second solo album later this year under her new label.
