Billy Dean is releasing his first new country album in a decade this summer, The Rest of It’s Mine, on BFD/Audium Nashville. Slated for July 22, the 10-track collection reflects a place close to his heart: his home state of Florida.
“I was so touched and moved when Florida inducted me into its Artists Hall of Fame it made me terribly homesick,” explains Dean. “So I moved back to reconnect with my aging mother, my high school buddies and friends and family. That all inspired the tropical flavor of this album.”
Dean, a Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, co-wrote nine of the ten songs on the compilation with Brent Rader who also produced the project, Tom Woodard, Monty Powell, David Duncan, and Dean’s personal friends and Florida natives Hugh and Cody Vanlandingham. He and veteran songwriter Paul Overstreet wrote the album’s title track and first single, and Overstreet’s vocals are featured on the cut.
The project also includes a special bonus track—a 30th anniversary re-recorded version of Dean’s smash hit, “Somewhere in My Broken Heart,” performed with a full symphony orchestra.
In addition to his solo dates, Dean will be teaming up with fellow country vets Shenandoah and Wade Hayes on the “Country Comeback Tour” throughout the year.
