This one is a winner.

Fresh off announcing his record deal with Big Loud yesterday, Charles Wesley Godwin is teasing new music.

Though an official release date for his third album has yet to be announced, we do know that he’s been working on it and it’s pretty much finished now.

And Big Loud Partner and CEO Seth England seemingly released the title of it yesterday, saying on his Instagram stories that he’s already heard the full project titled Family Ties, adding that it’s a “masterpiece”:

And the new tune CWG teased yesterday called “Gabriel” fits in perfectly with that theme, as it’s a sweet song written for his young son, Gabriel Wesley Godwin, about how much he loves him and the joy he brings to their family:

“Gabriel, Gabriel,
I can’t describe the joy in side,
It’s like the big bang juiced up and amplified…
My heart is on display,
It changes my whole game,
Just to speak your name, Gabriel”

Of the new partnership with Big Loud, Charles says he can’t wait to get to work the entire team in Music City:

“I’m thrilled to partner up with Big Loud Records for this next chapter of my career.

Their enthusiasm and belief in my music matches that of my family, friends, bandmates, and team. Ultimately that is what is most important.

It’s been an unbelievably good experience getting to know Seth (England), Nate (Yetton), and the entire Big Loud staff. I’m so excited for what’s ahead and can’t wait to share new music with the world.”

Of course, Big Loud is the home of massive mainstream superstar Morgan Wallen, as well as Hardy, Ernest, Hailey Whitters, and many other great acts, so he’s certainly in good hands and has every resource imaginable to continue growing in his career and reach more and more fans all over the world.

In addition to the new album coming sometime this year (hopefully, and probably, soon), Charles will open up for his friend Zach Bryan on the Burn, Burn, Burn tour this summer.
