Tyler Hubbard finally announced the release date of his highly-anticipated debut solo album after sharing a few of his new songs over the past few months. The country singer-songwriter will drop his full-length album in January, but before then, Hubbard release five new songs in time for Keith Urban’s headlining tour.

Hubbard made the announcement on his social media channels on Friday morning (July 29): “I'm excited to let y’all know that I'm dropping a new batch of songs called Dancin’ In The Country on August 19th. I wanted to get some more music out to you before hitting the road with [Keith Urban] this Fall. I can’t wait to share these songs with you and am so excited to play them for y'all on tour.”

Urban added Hubbard to his “The Speed Of Now Tour” this fall. Urban is already on the road with special guest Ingrid Andress, and Hubbard said he’s “stoked” to join the two of them on tour. Hubbard’s solo album is set to release on January 27, according to a press release shared by his record label. Dancin’ In The Country will include five additional tracks to Hubbard’s previously-released songs, “Way Home,” “35’s” and “5 Foot 9.” The collection that’s due next month is “a project of specially selected songs,” the release states.
