“There’s differences in all the decades of country music, and there’s good and bad in all of it, so I choose to focus just on the good,” said Joshua Hedley in our April profile on the country artist (on stands around Nashville now). “That said, I’ll listen to Luke Bryan if Metro Boomin starts making beats for him.”
So will we, Mr. Hedley. We can’t promise that Hedley’s new album will excite you as much as Metro Boomin’ gone country (disclaimer: that is not a thing, though Young Metro did allegedly retire from rap), but we know it’s going to be darn good.
But hey, be your own judge—Hedley is releasing his new album, Mr. Jukebox, tomorrow at The Grande Ole Opry (needless to say, this isn’t your typical record release). If you can’t make it to the Opry, you’ll want to make sure to be at Basement East next Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. for the other record release show. Tickets for the event are available online.
