Kevin Costner, country singer

kevin_costner.jpgKevin Costner is following in Jessica Simpson’s footsteps by becoming a country music star. His first country album will be released next month, according to People magazine. The actor/director tells the magazine that he’s been playing music with some of his Modern West band mates for nearly 20 years. Six songs from the 12-track album are co-written by Costner, and several of those will be released to country music stations this week. The CD is set to be released November 11, and Costner is planning to go on tour with the band later this year. They recently performed a concert at the Showboat Casino in Atlantic City.

    with all of the undiscovered talent out there just drooling over the chance to get a record deal or god forbid radio play on some local radio station, it makes me tisk tisk with disappointment that just because of who Costner is ( not for his acting ability that’s for sure)…he gets exposure; Never even knew or cared that he has the twang.

    But then again….they gave a contract to Paris Hilton, he’s gotta be more worth it

    Kevin Costner is a talented actor and director
    but having said that he`s unhip in the same way that Superman is.He`s so unhip he`s hip again.The extent of his musical abilities remain dubious but for some reason I`m not suprised to hear Kevin Costner is pursuing a career as a country singer,it suits him(and I
    mean that in a good way).

    I can’t really see him as a country singer, but you never know, I’ll give him a chance. I’ve always liked him.
