In celebration of his acclaimed new album, Beginning of Things, Charlie Worsham was recently featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered.” Listen to the full interview HERE. Of the acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician, NPR praises, “…he’s the sort of artist who can do it all. As he returns with his second album, Beginning Of Things, he’s got everybody in the know in Nashville rooting for him.”
Released last month on on Warner Bros. Records / Warner Music Nashville, Beginning Of Things continues to receive widespread critical praise—NPR Music’s Ann Powersasserts, “Worsham is the guy many country music lovers in Nashville love the most, though the rest of the world is only just recognizing his enormous skill and grace.” She continues, “Like [Miranda] Lambert, Worsham is making a space in country music for subtle challenges, using humor and insight and undeniable musical talent. He’s a serious contender, even as he makes us all smile.”
Additionally, the official music video for Worsham’s single, “Cut Your Groove,” recently premiered at CMT and can now be viewed/shared here. Of the song and video, CMT praises, “…an uplifting and mighty ode to staying the course and never giving up…The empowering lyrics of Worsham’s stunning debut track were put into motion in the heartwarming video directed by Sam Siske.”
Worsham is currently in the midst on an extensive co-headlining tour with Brandy Clark, which includes upcoming shows in Birmingham, Nashville, Atlanta, Denver, Portland and more. He’ll also join Tim McGraw and Faith Hill for select performances as part of their SOUL2SOUL Tour later this summer. See below for full details.
Recent critical acclaim for Beginning Of Things…
“…shows him to be one of country’s most formidable dark horses, a quiet contender worthy of the attention and airplay claimed by his less cerebral contemporaries.” —American Songwriter
“If ever there was a champion for truth in life and music, it would hands-down be Charlie Worsham.”—CMT
“…a solid reminder that no matter what happens in life, the world keeps spinning…strings and surprise horns provide an uplifting accompaniment to the song’s positive message.”—CMT
“At its best, country music is a preserve for the up-close and personal. From Merle Haggard to Miranda Lambert, the genre’s most powerful storytellers illuminate big subjects like family, love or work by focusing on small details unfolding in kitchens, on back porches or in farm fields. ‘The Beginning Of Things,’ the title track from Charlie Worsham’s excellent upcoming second album, demonstrates this art with uncommon grace and intelligence.”—NPR Music
“His understated, warm vocal exudes sympathy, exactly nailing the part in the storytelling process where words are shaped by phrasing and intonation. Behind him, an ace band…crafts an environment that’s simple and inviting, encouraging the listener to sit back and think about what’s being said.” —NPR Music
“…a combination of that gentle spirit and rebellious streak – with plenty of room to showcase his serious guitar chops.”—Rolling Stone
“…a skillful, dazzling array of musical genres that suggest the work of a seasoned veteran.”
“For country fans, Beginning of Things is already one of the most-anticipated records of 2017.”—The Tennessean
Beginning of Things includes 13 new songs, 9 of which Worsham co-wrote, and was co-produced by Frank Liddell (Miranda Lambert, Lee Ann Womack, Aubrie Sellers) and Eric Masse (Rayland Baxter, Mikky Ekko) with Arturo Buenahora, Jr. (Eric Church, Dierks Bentley) serving as the Executive Producer.
Of the album, Worsham comments, “We had so much fun! I had fallen out of love with music, and making this record put me back in love with it on a level I hadn’t felt since I was a teenager. Beginning Of Things was a challenge in surrendering control and trusting my own talent. I’m confident that these songs and these recordings capture my musical geography and personal truth, and at the end of the day, I’m convinced that is the ultimate purpose of an artist—to speak one’s truth.”
