BMG/Stoney Creek Records’ King Calaway are preparing for the August 4 release of Tennessee’s Waitingthe group’s first full-length album in nearly four years, produced by Zac Brown.

Featuring collaborations with GRAMMY nominee Marcus King, ACM winner Hailey Whitters, and Brown on the previously released track, ‘When I Get Home’ — declared a “star-making release” by Billboard – their forthcoming sophomore album showcases smooth vocals and cross genre appeal.

Reflecting on how the album came together, King Calaway lead guitarist Caleb Miller said, “’Tennessee’s Waiting’ is our first full-length project in nearly four years, and we feel so grateful to have created it not only alongside each other as a band, but with some of our closest friends and mentors. To get the opportunity to take the music from the studio to playing it live on tour with Zac Brown Band has been incredible and we can’t wait for more fans to hear it.” 
In fact, the bond was so strong that following their time in the studio the group landed an opening slot on Zac Brown Band’s 2023 From the Fire Tour. “I recognized the talent this young group has and when we started working in the studio, so much more unfolded,” Brown previously shared with PEOPLE“I believe in these guys. When [producer] Keith Stegall bet on me and helped me make my first album, that was the launch of my career,” continuing, “it’s great to be able to give [that same opportunity] back.”
