Kevin Costner Country?
Kevin Costner & Modern West will release their debut country album, Untold Truths, to stores on November 11. Yes, that's Kevin Costner the actor, who actually began playing and writing music with band mate John Coinman about 20 years ago when the two met in L.A. at an acting workshop. At that time, he had started a band called Roving Boy, but was too busy once his film career took off. Throughout the years, he's still managed to find some time to play, write and record with some of his band mates, and eventually decided to perform more regularly. The group wrote or co-wrote all 12 of the original songs featured on their upcoming release. One track, "Long Hot Night," is already available for download at all digital music outlets. Kevin Costner & Modern West will tour later this year and into early 2009 in support of the project.
