Friday, November 3, 2023 – Jason Aldean dropped his 11th studio disc, "Highway Desperado," today. The 14 tracks include Aldean's controversial Hot 100 chart-topping single "Try That In A Small Town," which recently became his 28th career number one single at country radio. The album also features his next single, "Let Your Boys Be Country," and three tracks co-written by Aldean. Michael Knox once again produced Aldean.

Cody Johnson, whose career continues on the upswing, is out with "Leather." The 12-song project includes his single, "The Painter," and also features Brooks & Dunn and Jelly Roll. "Leather" was produced by Trent Willmon and is Johnson's third major label studio album release following "Ain't Nothin' To It" in 2019 and 2021's "Human The Double Album."

Russell Dickerson released a deluxe edition of his self-titled album titled "Russell Dickerson: The Afterparty Deluxe.," He augmented the original 15 tracks with 10 new cuts. The disc features unplugged acoustic versions of "God Gave Me A Girl," along with "Beers to the Summer," "I Remember," "Drink To This" and "Over and Over." Sampling from his recent live shows, the project has four new live recordings including PLATINUM-certified hit "She Likes It," along with songs "Big Wheels," "I Wonder" and "I Still Believe."

Multi-Canadian Country Music Association award-winning country artist Brett Kissel released the third of four albums from his musical endeavor, "The Compass Project," titled "West Album." Kissell helped write 8 of the 11 songs and covered Jimmy Webb's "Wichita Lineman."

Toby Keith has a compilation disc out, "100% Songwriter."
