BR549’s Chuck Mead Readies First Solo Album

Chuck Mead, co-founder of the three-time Grammy nominated honky-tonk heroes BR549, has posted on his MySpace page that he is readying his first solo album Journeyman’s Wager (drops 3/17.) The release will be produced by Grammy-winner Ray Kennedy and will feature eleven tracks that “embody not only the core of country music, but also the pulse of pop, R&B, hillbilly rock, Gospel and beyond. “Why be confined by barriers or genres?” Chuck asks. “As far as I’m concerned, it’s all American Music. These are the sounds that made up my musical vocabulary. I still believe that American Music is about real things, good stories and unique songs. And I’m willing to bet that most everyone else does, too.”
