Three years later, Munsick announces soph effort

Friday, January 13, 2023 – Three years after introducing his mountain-high voice and canyon-deep lyrics with his critically acclaimed debut, "Coyote Cry," Wyoming native Ian Munsick will be out with an 18-song tribute to the American West, "White Buffalo," on April 7 on Warner Music Nashville.

Munsick, a country traditionalist, produced with Jared Conrad, Jeremy Spillman and others.

"A lot can happen in three years. In fact, I've had more change in my life in the last three years than the 26 years leading up to them," Munsick said. "I've become a father and a husband. I've become a better songwriter, entertainer and have finished working on my second album. Damn does it feel good to finally say that."

"'White Buffalo' will take you on a journey through the last three years of my life. Songs about love, loss, fatherhood, nostalgia, cowgirls and cow shit with, of course, plenty of fiddle. I could not be prouder of this record or more excited for you to hear it. It's been three years in the making, but I promise you it's been worth the wait."

"Horses & Weed," the faith-driven love song "More Than Me" and duet "Long Live Cowgirls" with two-time CMA Award winner Cody Johnson already have been released.

"River Run" was just released. "Love and landscape. That's what inspires me most as a songwriter, artist and producer," Munsick said of the track he penned alongside Spillman and Ryan Beaver. "Whenever I need inspiration, I just close my eyes and let the memory of the place I love most take me downstream. For this song, that place was the Tongue River. I remember fishing, swimming and rolling down the mountain cold waters in the heat of rodeo season. Some of my fondest memories. I hope 'River Run' rolls you right back to wherever that place is for you."

Munsick will hit the road for his headlining Long Live Cowgirls 2023 Tour starting on
