Radney Foster Sets September Release For CD+Book ‘For You To See The Stars’

Radney Foster‘s latest project, a dual book and CD combination, For You To See The Stars, is set for release Sept. 15. The collection of short stories, released via Working Title Farm, Marks Foster’s first print publication. The Devil’s River Records album is Foster’s 11th foray into the studio and features nine new songs and a special re-recording of his single, “Raining on Sunday.”

Among the tales Foster conjures up in his collection are the story of a retired spy in New Orleans, the tale of a Dallas lawyer wandering the Rocky Mountains in search of redemption, and a post-apocalyptic parable of a world in endless war.

“For me, the goal of writing is always to touch that one person so much that they wonder how I got a peek into their living room–how I understood exactly what they felt,” says Foster about his process. “More than just rhyming or having a pretty melody, I try to express a part of the human condition that can make someone want to laugh, cry, make love, or all of the above.”

Foster will appear at the Southern Festival of Books in Nashville on Oct. 14-15 and at local bookstore Parnassus on Oct. 17 in support of the new project.
