Charlie Worsham’s highly anticipated sophomore album Beginning of Things is set to be released April 21 on Warner Bros. Records / Warner Music Nashville. Co-produced by Frank Liddell (Miranda Lambert, Lee Ann Womack, Aubrie Sellers) and Eric Masse (Rayland Baxter, Mikky Ekko), the 13-track album is already receiving widespread advance critical acclaim, with NPR Music praising, “…Worsham has made a sophomore album that, if there’s justice, will give him an unforgettable year. It’s a strong statement of purpose and further proof that country aimed at the center can be deeply intelligent, beautifully crafted and meaningful.” Born and raised in Mississippi, Worsham attended Grenada High School and went on to study at Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music. In addition to his life as a working musician, Worsham is actively involved in music education and, last year, founded the Follow Your Heart Scholarship Fund in partnership with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. The fund supports the youth of Grenada, Mississippi—his hometown—who possesses uncommon talent and desire to achieve great things in the arts.
