Radney Foster’s New Album For You To See The Stars
Climbs Billboard Charts
Fans Respond to Critically Acclaimed Project

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- October 5, 2017 -- After just a week of sales, Radney Foster ’s album For You To See The Stars , debuted on five different Billboard charts. Rankings include the #1 spot on Heatseekers South Central, #21 on Heat Seekers, #22 on Folk Album Sales, #35 on Country Album Sales, and #49 on the Independent Album chart. In addition, the album is Top 20 on the Americana Airplay chart.

For You To See The Stars is a CD/book duo that was released September 15, 2017. The collection of short stories, published via Working Title Farm , is Foster's very first print publication . The record (Devil's River Records) marks Foster's eleventh studio album and features nine new songs, along with a special re-recording of his top single, "Raining on Sunday."

The project has received widespread praise, including features in publications like The Boston Globe , Houston Chronicle , and Wide Open Country , who called it “A masterpiece...his greatest collection of music yet.” The beauty of this CD/book combo lives within Foster's extensive imagery, which not only further expands the meaning behind Foster's songs, but gives the reader a look at the thought process behind his songwriting. "For me, the goal of writing is always to touch that one person so much that they wonder how I got a peek into their living room--how I understood exactly what they felt. More than just rhyming or having a pretty melody, I try to express a part of the human condition that can make someone want to laugh, cry, make love, or all of the above."

Foster has written eight number one hit singles, including his own "Nobody Wins," and "Crazy Over You" with duo Foster & Lloyd. His discography contains countless cuts by artists ranging anywhere from country (Keith Urban, The Dixie Chicks, Luke Bryan, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band) to contemporary (Marc Broussard, Hootie & The Blowfish, Kenny Loggins, Los Lonely Boys).

For You To See The Stars is Foster at his classic storytelling best, both as a seasoned singer/songwriter and a soulful writer of prose. Although both components stand alone as separate pieces of art-- they are meant to be enjoyed together for a reason. When coupled, the book and CD give fans a deeper insight into the subconscious of Foster's storytelling. Journalist Peter Cooper puts it best, "Radney Foster writes with uncommon depth of emotion, humor, empathy, and clarity. I'm going to ask him how he does it, and if he tells me I'll let you in on his secret. Until then, it's best that we read, wonder, and revel."
