The album has received much praise from American Songwriter, Music Row, Whiskey Riff, Wide Open Country, CMT, Country Central, All Country News, and more. The album’s most recent single, “She’ll Always Be,” was named a Song You Need to Hear by Taste of Country. Furthermore, the album was included in Rolling Stone’s Country Music 2024 Preview.

In an interview with Josh Abbott, he shared, “This new album feels like we’re starting part 3 of our book with an additional set of characters and a new plot. There’s a new chemistry, and with that comes new tones and ideas. This album has a lot to say, and while we’ve always been personal with our music, this one has some venting and feistiness.”

The album was produced at Baker’s Matchbox Studios in Austin and features longtime members Eddie Villanueva (drums), Austin Davis (banjo), David Fralin (keys), and Jimmy Hartman (bass). Recent additions to the band include Adam Hill (fiddle) and guitarists Cale Richardson and Kris Farrow. The album was written and recorded after their initial follow-up to 2020’s The Highway Kind was scrapped. Somewhere Down The Road explores family life, love, and the music industry with a newfound sense of unguarded honesty.

The Josh Abbott Band is a staple in the Texas music scene, first forming in 2006 at Lubbock’s Texas Tech University. Their relentless on-stage attitude quickly made them a successful touring act, building from a Texas band to a regional act and then to a national crew with a devoted following from coast to coast. Over the course of their career, the group has earned two top 10 debuts on the Billboard country albums chart, two RIAA Certified Gold singles, two top 40 hits including features with Kacey Musgraves and Carly Pearce, and upwards of 235 million streams, fully affirming JAB as a formidable force in modern country music.

The band’s Somewhere Down The Road tour starts tonight at Key West’s Mile 0 Fest before continuing through Atlanta, Nashville, Chicago, St. Louis, and the band’s debut performance at Stagecoach Festival in April.
