Ones We’re Hoping For

1. Kelsea Ballerini

Ballerini’s last project dropped in 2020 and we’re hoping new music comes from the singer sometime in 2022.

2. Luke Combs

The last LP from Luke Combs was also released in 2020. His new single “Doin’ This” that came out in mid-November might suggest a new record is deemed for 2022, but we’ll have to wait and see.
