NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Known for a remarkable aptitude at crafting music with character-driven storylines, singer/songwriter Erin Enderlin will unveil her first new full-length album since 2017 with the release of Faulkner County this Friday, Nov. 1. Pre-save the album on Spotify HERE.
Faulkner County arrives amidst mounting anticipation generated through a series of digital EPs Enderlin released earlier this year. Those EPs, released roughly in eight week intervals, garnered significant traction in the digital music space and led to Enderlin’s first significant playlisting on Spotify (Nashville Stripped, Next From Nashville, Wild Country), Apple Music (Country Roads, Speaking Easy) and Amazon Music (Fresh Folk & Americana).
Produced by Jim “Moose” Brown and Jamey Johnson, Faulkner County will cement 2019 as a red-letter year for Enderlin. The 14-track LP is a masterful ramble through lonely barroom corners and bedrooms, story after story delivered by Enderlin’s impeccable golden-era warble. A stellar supporting cast including Vince Gill, Alison Krauss, Terri Clark, Cody Jinks, Dillon Carmichael and others poured harmonies and soul into the vivid collection, sounding like kindred spirits and close friends making music together for the sheer joy of it.
Enderlin’s fall has been defined by exciting career firsts and incredible momentum. After sold-out shows in her first-ever UK tour, she returned to Nashville to showcase at AMERICANAFEST. She’ll close out 2019 having played more than 100 shows. In June, she took home three trophies at the Arkansas Country Music Awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year. All the while, Enderlin’s success as a songwriter persisted as musical heroes turned to her for songs. Reba McEntire, Terri Clark, Rodney Crowell, Rhonda Vincent and more all recorded Enderlin-penned gems in 2019.
Enderlin will celebrate the release of Faulkner County on Nov. 1 in Nashville with an album signing and acoustic performance at The Ernest Tubb Record Shop from 3:30-5:00 p.m., as well as a performance at The Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman for both the 7:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. showtimes.
