Nashville singer and songwriter Kenny Foster adds another new layer to the story he’s telling through new album, Somewhere In Middle America (out Oct 19th), with the reflective song, ‘Dreams Change‘, released today – listen on Spotify / Apple Music / Amazon / YouTube.
Shared in the midst of his latest trip overseas, the lyrical new single provides another glimpse into the artist’s homespun, thoughtful philosophy, recognising that whatever unexpected challenges life might throw at us, “it all turns out okay,” and finding the right person can be “living proof that God don’t make mistakes.”
“The funny thing about dreams, goals, and aspirations is that when we first make them, we’ve got no Earthly clue what they’re really about or what it will take,” says Kenny. “Sometimes on the way to pursuing one dream we find another that is bigger, better, and brighter than the first. If you find yourself there, by all means, change course. Dreams change, after all.”
The fourth track to be released from the album, this follows ‘Copy, Paste, Repeat‘, ‘Poor Kids‘, and the title track ‘Somewhere In Middle America’, which premiered on BBC Radio 2 earlier this year, with additional airplay including Planet Rock, RTÉ Radio One, BBC Radio Scotland and Soho Radio.
Foster performed at the Birmingham Symphony Hall earlier this week (17/8) as part of Nashville Sounds in the Round, and will make his anticipated return to Scotland this weekend with a main stage performance at Millport Festival (Aug 19-20) alongside Drake White, Sunny Sweeney, Ruthie Collins and more.
On returning to the UK, he said, “It’s been a reunion a long time coming. It feels a bit like returning home, and I’ve dearly missed home.”
The album, Somewhere In Middle America will be available worldwide on all major streaming/download platforms on October 19th, 2022.
