Foster sees "Stars"

Thursday, July 20, 2017 – Radney Foster announced today a CD/book combo, "For You To See The Stars," will be out Sept. 15.

The collection of short stories, released via Working Title Farm, will be Foster's first print publication. The record (Devil's River Records) marks Foster's 11th studio album and will feature nine new songs, along with a special re-recording of his top single, "Raining on Sunday."

"For me, the goal of writing is always to touch that one person so much that they wonder how I got a peek into their living room - how I understood exactly what they felt. More than just rhyming or having a pretty melody, I try to express a part of the human condition that can make someone want to laugh, cry, make love or all of the above."

Foster has written eight number one hit singles, including his own "Nobody Wins," and "Crazy Over You" with duo Foster & Lloyd. Keith Urban, The Dixie Chicks, Luke Bryan, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Marc Broussard, Hootie & The Blowfish, Kenny Loggins and Los Lonely Boys all have cut his songs.

For You to See the Stars CD review - For You to See the Stars
Radney Foster's been around for decades it seems, but has been one of the more underrated and under-appreciated wordsmiths around. His latest, however, has a link to far more words than even Bob Dylan could fit on a double-disc effort. The link is the album is a collection of songs with each track culled from "a companion short story" compilation of the same name penned by the musician. The result is an album that has plenty of warm, folksy nuggets, which makes the listener »»»
Everything I Should Have Said CD review - Everything I Should Have Said
"I've been a cowboy all my life/A rock star once or twice," Radney Foster sings on "The Man You Want," one of several outstanding songs on his new album "Everything I Should Have Said." Indeed, had Radney Foster never ventured beyond his partnership with Bill Lloyd under the auspices of the duo Foster & Lloyd, chances are he would still have acquired a sufficient degree of fame and prosperity. The fact that he can lay claim to a successful solo career and »»»
Del Rio Tx Revisited: Unplugged & Lonesome CD review - Del Rio Tx Revisited: Unplugged & Lonesome
Radney Foster, who had his only 2 top 10 hits as a performer with songs from his classic "Del Rio, TX 1959," releases "Del Rio, TX Revisited: Unplugged and Lonesome," significantly improving the 1992 Arista performances. The sequencing has been minimally refigured - moving Old Silver up and Went for A Ride down in the lineup balances things nicely. Louisiana Blue benefits greatly from the sparse presentation - the lyrics possess greater resonance, and the new mood is tender. »»»
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. »»»

Concert Review: Turner bring it on (to his second) home – Frank Turner opined during the first of four sold-out nights of the Lost Evenings Festival that Boston was his home away from his British home. The likable, accessible singer hit the sweet spot not only with his perspective, but his performance as well demonstrated why. Turner made a major change in this year's festival. For the first time, he... »»»
