Taste of Country just released a list of active country stars who have NOT released an album in 5 years or more. And I miss every one of these artists and I hope they will break their streak soon.

Here they are, in order of who has gone the longest without a studio album:

1. Faith Hill . . . Her last major album was, "Fireflies" in 2005. She released a Christmas album in 2008 and a CD of duets with her husband in 2017. There has been chatter of her releasing new music, but nothing to show for it yet.

2. Brooks and Dunn . . . Their last studio album was, "Cowboy Town" in 2007. They did release "Reboot" in 2019, but that was just some hits recorded with other artists. They are still actively touring, so maybe new music is out there?

3. Emmylou Harris . . . Her last album was "Hard Bargain" in 2011, and it sounds like that was probably her last. She told "Clash" magazine that, "she might have said everything she needed to say in music."

4. Brad Paisley . . . His last album was "Love and War" in 2017, but he has switched record companies and now says a new album will drop in 2024.

5. George Strait . . . His last album was "Honky Tonk Time Machine" in early 2019. But there's hope for new music from the King soon, he was recently spotted in studio with Chris Stapleton, so we're crossing our fingers and waiting.
