New Country Music Releases – February 2011
For such a short month, February 2011 is somehow filled with great new country music releases. If this were a leap year, there would be even more to talk about, as that would result in five February Tuesdays — the traditional days albums are released in America.
But don’t worry, there’s plenty of new albums from artists such as The JaneDear Girls, Shooter Jennings and Drive-By Truckers to fill the bins at your local record store. February will also see the release of a solo country album by Eddie Spaghetti of the Supersuckers entitled ‘Sundowner,’ perhaps after the one dirty, smoke-filled bar in all of squeaky clean Boulder, Colo.
Most importantly to country history, though, is a handful of Johnny Cash compilations, no doubt in honor of the Man in Black’s Feb. 25 birthday. You can get all the details below — and if you’re living where it’s cold, remember, spring will be here soon.
