Album Release Date / Producer? - January 27th, 2017 / Dan Huff (with Scott Borchetta as Executive Producer)
Genre? - Country Rock, or as Country Perspective pointed out, “Buttrock”
Opinion On The Artist's Discography Overall Up To This Point? - Believe it or not I don't actually mind Brantley all that much. Yeah, he's had some absolutely atrocious songs, many of which we'll be dealing with today, but as an overall artist, he can be solid when he wants to be. His debut album, Modern Day Prodigal Son is far and away his best work, and on its own merit it's a really good album. 2010's Halfway To Heaven is more of a mixed bag, mixing some truly great songs like “Saving Amy” and the title track with real clunkers like “Kick It In The Sticks”. 2014's Just As I Am brought Brantley back to “relatively solid”, with more of an emphasis on some deeper cuts as opposed to the bro-country singles that fronted the album. He's got some horrible songs, but overall I truthfully don't mind the guy.
Where Might Other People Know This Act From? - I might delete this section when I talk about mainstream albums, I mean look on Wikipedia if you seriously don't know...
Is There Any Sort Of Event Surrounding the Making Of This Album? - As far as I know, no. “The Weekend” is doing well enough to warrant the release so here we are.
