And not just back… he’s back with a TWENTY ONE SONG (double) album titled, Where Have You Gone.
We knew something was coming, as he teased the release of something new the other day with the caption “You’ve been waiting,” but we didn’t know he going to drop a 21-song bomb on us.
Set for release on May 14th, Alan is giving us a preview of the new record with a nice little 3-piece, featuring the title track, “Things That Matter” and “Way Down In My Whiskey.”

In addition to the three new ones, the album features a couple of wedding tracks dedicated to his daughters, one dedicated to his late mother, a “That’s The Way Love Goes” tribute to Merle Haggard, and “The Older I Get,” which Alan released back in 2017.
The title track finds Alan wondering the same thing we’ve all been wondering… where the hell has country music gone?
Check out this chorus:
“Soft steel guitar, oh how I’ve missed you Words from the heart, let me hear you again Sounds from the soul, fiddle I need you Sweet country music, where have you gone Sweet country music, please come back home.”
