Unearthed Earl Thomas Conley Tracks Set For Release In New ‘Promised Land’ Collection

Earl Thomas Conley fans can rejoice, because some brand new music from the beloved country legend will soon see the light of day. BFD/Audium Nashville is releasing Earl Thomas Conley – Promised Land: The Lost Album, a compilation of a dozen tunes originally recorded by Conley in 2000 and 2001, tomorrow (Sept. 25). Conley died on April 10, 2019, at age 77.

“This collection of music was one of dad’s last endeavors of putting together an album,” Conley’s youngest daughter Erinn Scates said. “Here you will find some of his most thoughtful lyrics and heartfelt mementos. Dad was a man who wore many hats. A painter, a craftsman, a sketch artist but music, most of all, was his truest passion. To his loyal fans, thank you for loving him as much as we did. This last album is dedicated to you and the man who spent the last years of his life devoted to it.”

Conley wrote/co-wrote all 12 Promised Land tracks in the early and mid-‘90s, and recorded some of the songs as demos during that time, but the tracks were never released. At the dawn of the new millennium, Conley circled back to the tunes and cut them.
