Hollywood actor Kevin Costner is confirmed to release a country music album with his band, Modern West. The album features 12 new songs, half of which are co-written by Kevin himself. The record will reportedly hit the market on November 11 but no word is available about the album's title.
Previously, Kevin, who played a lovable loser named Bud Johnson in big screen "Swing Vote", announced his move to jump into the music industry about three months ago when he performed with Modern West for the first time at NASCAR event in July. "I remember looking out into the crowd, thinking, 'This just feels right,'" he said at that time.
Meanwhile, a statement issued on the band's MySpace page revealed that they were actually connected at the first sight. "We got our first glimpse of music adoration while singing in the church choir," the statement said.
Most recently, in "The New Daughter", Kevin stars as John James, a single father who moves to a house in the country with his two children following a painful divorce. Soon, however, his adolescent daughter, played by Ivana Baquero, begins acting strangely, and the household is plagued by disturbing events. Kevin, then, begins to suspect that the mysterious mound at the edge of the forest may have something to do with her ominous behavior. The film is scheduled for release sometime in 2009.
