Radney Foster to Release New Album "Everything I Should Have Said" on May 13

Well-known singer/songwriter Radney Foster is set to return to the scene with Everything I Should Have Said, his first album of all-new material in five years. Foster -- perhaps best known for "Nobody Wins" -- is considered one of the genre's top songwriters. Get the scoop about his new album here!

The iconic singer/songwriter Radney Foster is gearing up to release his first album of all new material in five years. Everything I Should Have Said will hit stores on May 13 on his own Devil's River Records and distributed by Think Indie. 

“I’m always trying to find a little piece of the truth,” says Foster. "My challenge is, how do you have another take on a love song? How do you keep it interesting? I wanted the album to have a band feel, and to do that I knew we needed to get away from schedules and cell phones.” 

So Foster and his band landed at Dockside Studios, a little pocket of soul alongside the Louisiana bayou. The space is the site of a long-forgotten brothel, and far from the sterile studios of Nashville. “When you’re sitting with the moss is hanging from the trees and the bayou rolling by, you can’t help but have your songs slow down and get swampier.”

Co-producer Justin Tocket encouraged Foster to dig deeper than ever before with the recordings, some of which lasted long into the night. Foster and Tocket intentionally chose not to over polish, preferring to keep the sweat and tears on the tracks.

“I’ve gotten to an age where I feel like I don’t have anything to prove,” admits Foster. “And that’s very freeing when it comes to playing, singing and recording. Telling stories is embedded and ingrained in my DNA. My grandfather was a cowboy raconteur and a storyteller. He didn’t sing songs, but he sure told stories around the campfire. There’s a long, long history of yarn spinning in Texas, and I like to think I come from that tradition.”
