The eight-time Grammy winner and three-time ACM Entertainer of the Year will unleash ‘Denim & Rhinestones’ on June 10. “We cover a lot of ground on this album,” the superstar said in a statement. “We have a lot of songs that have a bit of a ‘throwback’ feel, but they sound super fresh. I grew up listening to so many different kinds of music and that is extremely evident in this body of work. These are musical influences that are all in me and work their way out, and I just decided this time not to get in their way. I think this whole album ended up being a big reflection of me as a person and as an artist.”
