Crouse announces debut for August
Thursday, July 10, 2014
– Joel Crouse will release his debut studio album, "Even the Rivre Runs," on Aug. 19.
Produced by Jamie Houston, the Show Dog - Universal Music project includes Crouse's newest offering, "Don't Tell Me," which is set to hit SiriusXM's The Highway.
"I'm very excited for everyone to see who I am through this record and to follow my journey in life as I write about it," said Crouse.
The 10-song disc finds Crouse having a hand in writing every song. Recently featured in the CW's TV show "Hart of Dixie," "Don't Tell Me" was co-written by Crouse and Nashville writers James Dean Hicks and Jamie Houston.
The Massachusetts native opened 16 dates on Taylor Swift's RED Tour. Crouse recently fulfilled a lifelong dream, as he made his debut on the Grand Ole Opry stage. Thanks to his grandfather, Crouse was introduced to country music and classic rock at a young age.
Songs on the CD are:
1. Don't Tell Me
2. If You Want Some
3. You Could Break A Heart Like That
4. Summer Love
5. Even The River Runs
6. Slow Motion
7. Oh Juliet
8. Ruby Puts Her Red Dress On
9. Why God Made Love Songs
10. I Never Said I Was In Love

Crouse's very smooth, soulful delivery suits the 10 songs just fine, although you're »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
