Updated: Nov 6, 2023

After a shocking rise to fame with his iconic, stripped down hit "Rich Men North of Richmond" the singer / songwriter's buzz has died down precipitously, but we're wondering, as is most of the country music industry, will he record an actual studio album? And if he does, what then? It's going to be incredibly difficult to duplicate the buzz his first hit song created, it struck a chord and was the right song at the right time for most of middle America, which has been mired in a difficult political, social and financial slump since the Covid bucks ran out.
