Fans can expect the first single this spring and will be able to get glimpses of the recording process along the way through The new album will follow in the footsteps of Bentley's bluegrass-based "Up on the Ridge," which recently received three Grammy nominations

Thompson debuted last year with "Way Out Here." Thompson wrote or co-wrote all 10 tracks on the album including his current single, Won't Be Lonely Long, which follows previous hits "Way Out Here and Beer On The Table.

A&M/Octone's first country release is the female duo Miss Willie Brown, comprised of Amanda Watkins from West Virginia and Texas native Kasey Buckley. The two girls met in California waiting tables, instantly bonded over a deep love of country music and have been writing and singing together ever since. Now living in Nashville, the duo is recording their debut album with award winning producer Keith Stegall (Zac Brown Band, Alan Jackson) and will release the lead single in the coming months. Miss Willie Brown was the only unsigned band to ever perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

CD review - Riser Change was in store for Dierks Bentley when it came to recording his seventh album, "Riser." On the personal front, he lost his father and added to his family, clearly affecting the subject matter of his latest.
