Kevin 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.
