The year 2018 was a big one for country and Americana music: Carrie Underwood's dramatic Cry Pretty, the return of the Pistol Annies with Interstate Gospel and big releases from Eric Church, Dierks Bentley, Kacey Musgraves and Brandi Carlile, among others, all made their way into fans' hands (and ears) during the year.

But 2019 isn't looking too shabby in terms of new releases, either. Already, there's almost two dozen new projects on the horizon.

In 2019, fans can look forward to the highly anticipated major-label debuts from artists such as Cody Johnson and Pony Bradshaw; an album of duets from Ronnie Milsap and a number of special guests; and Trisha Yearwood's first new full-length album in a decade. And that's just the beginning.
